Guide to using Mendeley reference management and social citation sharing software

Mendeley Cite

Mendeley Cite is an add-in for MS Word that speeds up the process of referencing when writing /word-processing. It allows you to quickly and easily insert references from your Mendeley library directly into your Word document, without the need to open Mendeley Reference Manager, Mendeley Desktop, or even have either Mendeley desktop application installed.

With Mendeley Cite you can:

  • Search for references in your Mendeley library, and insert them into a Word document.
  • Select and insert either individual or multiple references.
  • Create a bibliography of all cited references.

Mendeley Cite is available on Desktop@UCL and Desktop@UCL Anywhere, and you can install it on your own PC.
