About Mendeley

Mendeley is a reference management software, an academic collaboration network, and a crowd sourced database with a unique layer of social information research, all wrapped into one.

Mendeley can help you achieve a number of things, including (but not limited to):

  • Correct in-text citations and bibliographies in the style of choice via smooth technical integration in MS Word, Google Docs, & Latex.
  • Seamless collaboration both in-house and across organizations via groups, both private and public.
  • Quick dissemination of academic production via social media platform

NB. Mendeley cannot help you decide when and where to cite a source in your document. To inform yourself on this topic, you will have to look elsewhere. One place to learn more about referencing specifically and academic intergrity more generally is the CBS Library Plagiarism and Academic Integrity guide.
