Mendeley

A cloud-based reference manager, an academic social network, and much more.

Overview

Introduction

Apart from allowing you to keep your PDFs in order and automatically generate citations in many different styles, Mendeley also provides a number of tools that help you share and collaborate with others.

Check out the videos on this page for details of two of these tools: User Profiles and Groups.

Mendeley Suggest

Your Library-provided Mendeley Plus account also gives you access to the Mendeley Suggest feature. This will provide you with suggestions for articles that might be of interest to you based on what you have already added to your personal Mendeley Library.

This feature is accessed in the desktop version of Mendeley. You can access it from the main menu.
