Mendeley is a reference manager that allows you to create a personal database of references related to your research, access or upload data, and insert citations into Word using any one of thousands of citation styles. If you are collaborating with other researchers, Mendeley allows you to share references.
Mendeley users can still sign up for a free account, which offers 2GB of web space and the ability to create 5 private groups with up to 25 members, or can upgrade to a premium plan to access more space or groups. This guide shares how to sign up for the free edition.
Use the Mendeley Desktop to build and organize your collection of references and documents, which you can sync with the web and mobile versions. Drag & drop PDF files into the Desktop to instantly create references. Annotate PDFs with highlights and sticky notes as you read them.
Adding the Web Importer to your favorite web browser makes it easy to import references and documents from academic databases. (Note: Chrome users can install the bookmarklet, not the browser extension, for greater functionality)
*Note: Mendeley is not currently compatible with Mac OS 10.12 (Sierra). Click here for more information.
The plugin allows you to insert citations and bibliographies into your Microsoft Word (including Word 2016), LibreOffice, or BibTeX document. Look for the Install link in the Tools menu of Mendeley Desktop.
