Mendeley uses a plug-in to format in-text citations and reference lists in MS Word. The functionality of this plug-in is limited, but it is simple and easy to use.
Insert in-text citations
You can select citations from your desktop Mendeley and insert them as in-text citations in your Word document.
Insert a bibliography
Click Insert Bibliography to start building your Reference List. Each time you add a new in-text citation to your document, the reference will be automatically added to your reference list, in the correct order.
Edit a bibliography
In-text citations and the bibliography in a Word document are linked with your Mendeley library. However, you can make a plain text document without Mendeley field codes.
