What is the Citation Plugin?

In addition to helping you manage your materials and organise your research, Mendeley can significantly speed up the process of writing your own papers. The Citation Plugin allows you to quickly and easily cite materials that you’ve added to your Mendeley library - as well as generating a full bibliography of the materials you’ve referenced in the paper. Best of all, it allows you to completely restyle all of the references you’ve inserted into a paper with just a couple of clicks.

  • It is a free, simple plugin for Microsoft Word (Windows, Mac) or Libre Office (All platforms).

  • 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.

  • Pick from a huge and growing library of citation styles and easily restyle all citations in a paper with a few clicks.
