Mendeley: Inserting Citations and Creating Bibliography

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.

Creating Citations and Bibliographies


Before inserting your citation and bibliography, you may want to verify all the required fields are present for the citation. "Needs Review" folder in your library lists the files that miss one or more fields.

You can "Search by Title" from the right pane of the Mendeley desktop or search the title on Google Scholar. After getting the fields filled in, click on "Details are Correct" button. This ensures your citation and bibliography are complete.
