Collect, organize and generate in-text citations for your BibTeX and BibLaTeX bibliography references without ever leaving your Overleaf or RStudio (Posit) project when writing your paper in LaTeX, Quarto, and R Markdown document!

CiteDrive is built from the ground up to stay out of your way and help you focus on writing.


Collecting references for your paper has never been easier. With the CiteDrive Companion browser add-on, discover articles, books, or websites through your regular sources– Google Scholar, Pubmed, and many others– and simply click the CiteDrive icon on your toolbar to add the reference directly to your CiteDrive project.


Unlike many other reference managers, CiteDrive is Bib[La]TeX native and gives you complete control to customize your BibTeX reference snippets as you collect them. Better yet, your customizations carry through as you connect your CiteDrive and Overleaf (or other LaTeX editors) projects or RStudio (Quarto and R Markdown) so you can take full advantage of custom field extensions.


Inserting in-text citations to your Overleaf paper from your CiteDrive project is a snap with the browser add-on. Simply look for the new “Insert Citation” button at the top of the Overleaf screen, select the reference of interest, and the appropriate in-text citation will be generated and inserted for you.

Risk impact

CiteDrive Companion requires some risky permissions and may not be safe to use. Exercise caution when installing this add-on. Review carefully before installing.

Risk impact measures the level of extra permissions an extension has access to. A low risk impact extension cannot do much harms, whereas a high risk impact extension can do a lot of damage like stealing your password, bypass your security settings, and access your personal data. High risk impact extensions are not necessarily malicious. However, if they do turn malicious, they can be very harmful.

Risk likelihood

CiteDrive Companion is probably trust-worthy. Prefer other publishers if available. Exercise caution when installing this add-on.

Risk likelihood measures the probability that a Firefox add-on may turn malicious. This is determined by the publisher and the Firefox add-on reputation on Firefox Browser Add-ons, the amount of time the Firefox add-on has been around, and other signals about the Firefox add-on. Our algorithms are not perfect, and are subject to change as we discover new ways to detect malicious extensions. We recommend that you always exercise caution when installing a Firefox add-on, especially ones with higher risk impact and/or higher risk likelihood.
