Mendeley is a free tool that can help you store and organise the references that you find during your research. This reference information can then be used to automatically insert citations and a fully formatted reference list into your Word documents.
There are two versions of Mendeley available - a desktop version (Reference Manager) and online. It is possible to use both versions and sync them together. The best way to navigate this guide is to go to Mendeley Online and then Reference Manager.
Elsevier is migrating from the older (legacy) Mendeley Desktop and Cite-o-Matic system to the new Mendeley Reference Manager and Mendeley Cite system.
Mendeley (desktop version) is in the Common Apps section on open access computers.
