Mendeley, get your citation writing automatically

As an academic, when we shall make some papers, we must have some real sources as references. Like a journal, it should be has identities such as name of journal, publication time, the author, etc. A good paper has many references, sometime in a paragraph, one reference for one statement. The more papers that we used need a management. We will not lose them or needs more time to find a folder we stored before.

Mendeley is a combination of a desktop application and a website which helps you manage, share and discover both content and contacts in research. Mendeley Desktop, offers you:

  1. Automatic extraction of document details (authors, title, journal etc.) from academic papers into a library database, which saves you a lot of manual typing. As more people use Mendeley, the quality of the data extraction improves.
  2. Super-efficient management of your papers: “Live” full-text search across all your papers – the results start to appear as you type!
