Installing the Mendeley Citation plugin for Word

15/05/2020

To use Mendeley with Microsoft Word, you need to install the Citation plugin. This allows Word and your Mendeley account to exchange information and, most importantly, lets you drop citations into your text as you type.

From your Mendeley Desktop. Click ‘Tools’ > ‘Install MS Word Plugin’ and follow the instructions. That’s it!

Now, open MS Word. Windows users, the Mendeley plugin should now appear on your Word Ribbon within the References tab.  Mine looks like this. Mac users will find their menu in the Add-ins tab.

Congratulations! You are now ready to start citing with Mendeley’s plug-in. Any problems at all, contact Kings Norton Library or MIRC or check out Mendeley’s support materials online.
