Before you start using Mendeley reference management software, you will need to create an account.  This is really simple and should take you no more than a couple of minutes. Just follow the instructions below.

Head to the Mendeley website and click on the big red ‘Create a free account’ button.

First enter your name, email address and create your password. This is separate from your Eve / CCNT password. Make sure this is something you will remember.
