Mendeley is a reference management tool that allows you to create a personal library of the literature that you use and create in-text citations and bibliographies on the fly.

Mendeley contents

Mendeley is a reference management tool that allows you to keep track of your sources when conducting research or writing a paper. Create your own personal library and annotate the saved PDF files. Insert in-text citations directly into your document and create bibliographies based on the references used.

You can access your Mendeley library online, offline and via dedicated app.

Mendeley also offers social and collaborative features that allow you to interact and share with other users, including 1000s of researchers. You can monitor specific topics or researcher profiles and engage in a wide host of discussion fora.

The subscription version of Mendeley is available to CBS students and staff only and offers enhanced functions. To access this version please sign in using your CBS e-mail address (you do not, however, need to use your official CBS password)

Non-CBS users can use the e-mail of their choice to create a free account.
