Meet style requirements


Different manuscripts require different reference styles – but editing and formatting reference lists to a specific style is a lot of work! Edifix helps out by automatically formatting reference entries to any of a wide variety of popular styles.

Insert missing author names

Do your references include only one author, but your reference style requires more? No problem! Edifix automatically inserts the correct number of author names in seconds.

Normalize journal titles

Edifix follows your editorial style to convert journal titles to their standard abbreviation or fully-spelled title.



Enhance automation with APIs

Looking to integrate bibliographic reference processing into a larger automated workflow? You can access all of Edifix’s capabilities programmatically using the Edifix API, available with Enterprise plans.

Ensure accuracy


Use data from PubMed and Crossref to automatically correct your reference data!
By intelligently comparing damaged or incomplete references against the PubMed and Crossref databases, Edifix safely makes corrections and inserts warnings when additional attention is required.

Fix typos and errors

In seconds, Edifix automatically corrects typos and errors using data from PubMed and Crossref.

Flag retractions and corrections

Edifix inserts a yellow warning to flag cited sources that have been significantly corrected or retracted.

Provide links to cited sources


Automatically insert PMID links to journal articles indexed on PubMed and linked DOIs for any content indexed by Crossref. Using a patented set of fuzzy-matching heuristics, Edifix can automate linking even for references that contain inaccuracies and automatically correct those errors.

I edit a lot of journal articles, and that’s a lot of references. I copy the reference list, paste it into Edifix in the web-based interface, select the AMA editorial style [...], and my reference copyediting time is cut in more than half.
