Key Features


1. Mendeley Library: The Web Library provides one with access to their personal library of references from their browser, allowing them to add new documents, download their documents and manage their collections online. One can use it in conjunction with Mendeley Desktop or on their own.

2) The Citation Plug-In:  In addition to helping one manage their materials and organize their research, Mendeley can significantly speed up the process of writing your own papers. The Citation Plugin allows one to quickly and easily cite materials that they’ve added to their Mendeley library - as well as generate a full bibliography of the materials they’ve referenced in the paper. Best of all, it allows one to completely restyle all of the references they’ve inserted into a paper with just a couple of clicks.

3) The One Click Importer: Import papers, web pages and other documents directly into your reference library from search engines and academic databases.
