The new Mendeley Reference Manager

Mendeley has changed the research workflow of reference management with its new version. Some features have been summarized, improved and redesigned.

What’s new in Mendeley Reference Manager:

  • Automatic synchronization allows to work from multiple locations and devices, thanks to cloud-based library.
  • Working in offline mode is possible due to automatic synchronization of your library when you are back online.
  • Improved Mendeley Web Importer
  • New citation add-in, Mendeley Cite for Microsoft Word

The still available Mendeley Desktop will be replaced by Mendeley Reference Manager in the long run. When exactly this will happen has not been determined yet (but already with the upgrade to macOS 11 Big Sur, Mendeley Desktop will no longer be supported).
