Mendeley

Adding References

There are many ways to add information to Mendeley; here are just a few examples:

  • Drag and Drop a PDF  (or an entire folder of PDFs) into the Mendeley Desktop to get the full-text and the complete record
  • Copy & Paste the PMID into the PMID field using the “Add Entry Manually” option to get a complete record
  • Copy & Paste the DOI into the DOI field using the “Add Entry Manually” to get a complete record
  • To add online content (from any website) use the Browser Extension in either Chrome or Firefox, or the Web Importer “bookmarklet” or Safari or Explorer
  • Type in a record manually using the “Add Entry Manually” option

*Keep in mind: you MUST review the details of the record information and edit/add whatever is incorrect/missing.  Citing correctly is dependent on the accuracy of your entries.
