What is Mendeley?

Mendeley is a reference/citation manager with web-based, desktop, and mobile versions. You can sync your citation library between these different versions and across different devices.

The Mendeley Cite tool allows you to easily insert in-text citations and bibliographies / references in documents created with Microsoft Word 2016 and above, Microsoft Office 365 and Online, and the Microsoft Word app for iPad.
