Mendeley Cite is a new citation tool, which is still being developed. Mendeley Cite is compatible with Microsoft Office 365, Microsoft Word versions 2016 and above and with the Microsoft Word app for iPad®. Cite without having Mendeley Reference Manager ("Mendeley Desktop") open or even installed - once you sign in to Mendeley Cite, your Mendeley library is downloaded from the cloud.
Once downloaded, Mendeley Cite will connect to Office 365 and show up in Office Online in your References Tab.
NOTE: Mendeley Cite is not currently compatible with Google Docs. If you are a Google Docs user, please consider using Zotero instead.
Steps for installing Mendeley Cite into MS Office through your UO account:
The Bibliography or Works Cited section of your manuscript can be created and updated at any point during your writing process. Although you can make manual edits to in-text citations, you should not make manual changes to the citations or bibliography embedded in your document. As the image below suggests, you should make any changes in Mendeley Reference Manager or Mendeley Cite. Changes should sync automatically or you may want to click Refresh.
If your citation style does not require you to repeat the author's last names in the parenthetical in-text citation, you can manually override the citation in the Mendeley Cite add-in. Do not edit the in-text citation or the bibliography in your document because you will lose your changes when the document syncs with your Mendeley Reference Manager. Make changes in the MRM or via Mendeley Cite. This example is using APA style.
