Mendeley is a reference management software that allows you to keep track of the sources that you collect and use in your research or assignments. Use Mendeley to create your own personal, and fully searchable library of contents and to annotate saved PDF documents. While writing, you can insert in-text citations directly into your document and create a bibliography based on the sources that you have used.
You can access Mendeley via a desktop app or directly from mendeley.com.
Mendeley is a social network, where 1000s of researchers share their work, and it is very easy not only to follow topics or individual researchers but even to interact with them.
The subscription version of Mendeley is available to CBS students and staff only and offers more enhanced functions than the free version, which is open even to non-CBS users.
