Mendeley: Citing Your Sources in Word

Mendeley is a free reference manager and academic social network that can help you organize your research, collaborate with others online, and discover the latest research.

Step 1: Install Word Plug-In

Once you have your documents in Mendeley, you can cite and reference them within Word and OpenOffice by installing plug-ins.  

Once installed, you will have tool bar buttons that will allow you to cite a document, generate a bibliography, or manually edit any entry.

Go to Tools > Install... and select the plugin you wish to add. 

Step 2: How to Generate Citations and Reference Lists (2:10 min)
