Mendeley Cite is a new tool for inserting in-text citations and references list in Word documents.
Find more details about how to cite references and insert a bibliography from the Mendeley Cite guide.
Mendeley Word plugin is used by the old Mendeley desktop version.
Mendeley uses a plugin to format in-text citations and reference lists in MS Word. The functionality of this plugin is limited, but it is simple and easy to use.
You can select citations from your desktop Mendeley and insert them as in-text citations in your Word document.
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.
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.
