Follow these steps to get started with Mendeley citation management:
1. Go to Mendeley.com and Create a Free Account. (please make sure to use your @westminster.edu email address for your account)
2. When you login with your new account, you will be able to view and edit your Library of citations from this page, or download an app to your computer called Reference Manager to use your Library.
** Please note: As long as you have an internet connection, changes made to your Library will sync between the Library in your browser and the Library in Reference Manager.
Add citations to your Mendeley Library in any of the following ways:
3. Use direct database citation export tools (available in ScienceDirect and Scopus).
NOTE: If you are not signed in to Mendeley on your browser, Scopus will allow you to do so after selecting Export -> Mendeley
4. Download individual citations in .ris format and upload to your Library (use this in WISE, EBSCOhost, and other databases).
