Guide to using Mendeley reference management and social citation sharing software

Mendeley Cite

Mendeley Cite is a new add-in for word that speeds up the process of referencing when writing by allowing you to quickly and easily insert references from your Mendeley library directly into your Microsoft Word document without the need to open Mendeley Desktop, or even have Mendeley desktop installed.

Please note:

  • Mendeley Cite is currently running in beta and does not have the full functionality of the Mendeley Cite-O-Matic tools. E.g. you cannot edit a citation. 
  • If you create documents using the Mendeley Cite-O-Matic plugin, you cannot currently convert it for use with Mendeley Cite. Similarly, references inserted using Mendeley Cite are not compatible with the Mendeley Cite-O-Matic plugin.
  • Mendeley Cite is not currently available on Desktop@UCL, and you will not be able to install it on Desktop@UCL.
