Mendeley is an award-winning reference manager and academic social network. It has accumulated a devoted network of academic users, and amassed a research library of millions of documents. Mendeley helps its users find research, it helps them easily add their research articles to their electronic research libraries, it helps them organise and even electronically annotate their research articles, and then it helps them cite them in their own research writing, automatically creating reference lists and formatting citations according to thousands of different citation styles.
