You can use Mendeley to insert references into a Word document, generate a bibliography at the end of your document and format it in the citation style of your choice. When you install Mendeley Desktop on your computer, a Mendeley Cite-O-Matic toolbar appears within the References tab in Word.
On Desktop@UCL computers the plugin is not installed by default. To install the toolbar on your computer
Close your word processor
In Mendeley Desktop, open the Tools Menu
Select the appropriate option to install the plugin.
You may experience problems if you are using a computer which has both EndNote and Mendeley plugins installed in Word.
If the Mendeley plug-in is causing problems, try disabling the EndNote plugin:
Open the File menu in Word.
Select Options then Add-Ins.
From the Manage list at the foot of the window select COM Add-ins and click Go.
Unselect the EndNote Cite While you Write Add-in, Click OK.
