  • Some users at WMU may experience login problems either in Mendeley Web or desktop. This may have something to do with WMU's email addresses. Please contact for assistance with resolving this problem.
  • Some users at WMU may also experience problems with receiving or accepting invitations to join Mendeley groups. Please contact for assistance with resolving this problem.
  • You cannot use Mendeley Web with MS Word on Mac computers, but you CAN use it with MS Word on Windows machines using the 'Export to MS Word' button.
  • You cannot use Mendeley Web or Mendeley Desktop with Google Docs. However, you can copy citations from Mendeley Desktop and paste them into your Google doc.
  • Mac Users who have OS Sierra and High Sierra may need to download an older version of Mendeley (version 1.16.3 - see here for it to work on your machines.
  • Both Mendeley Web and Desktop are NOT accessible to screen readers for the blind/low vision (JAWS, NVDA). Those users should consider purchasing the EndNote software.
  • Can't search text of annotations (and in web version, text in notes is also not searched).
  • Can't export citations plus your personal notes. The only way to do this is to put your notes in the abstract field and use APA cite/abstract (annotated bib) style.
  • Limited number of document types available (and no way to add new document types or create your own)
  • The company Elsevier (which publishes the ScienceDirect, Scopus and Engineering Village databases) is in the process of linking older Mendeley accounts to their own system. This may complicate exporting citations from their databases directly to Mendeley Web. Scopus, in particular, requests the user to login to an Elsevier account when the user attempts to login to Mendeley. Please contact the Scopus Support page to get help with this.

It is a free, simple plugin for Microsoft Word (Windows, Mac) or Libre Office (All platforms). Allows you to quickly and easily insert styled citations to reference materials from your Mendeley Library. Automatically generates a bibliography for your paper using all the materials you’ve cited. The word sync, not import, is a crucial distinction: Because Mendeley synchronizes with my Zotero, I can add books and articles to Zotero and they automatically appear in Mendeley.
