​Mendeley allows you to format your citations in over 1,000 different styles. You will need to download and and install Mendeley's Word plugin from the Mendeley client. Simply go to "Tools" and select "Install MS Word Plugin". Once the plugin has been installed, you can open up your word processor. The tool will appear in a different location depending on the software you’re using.

  • Allows you to quickly and easily insert styled citations to reference materials from your Mendeley Library.
  • Automatically generates a bibliography for your paper using all the materials you’ve cited.
