Citing and Citation Managers


 • The Word plugin for Mendeley does not currently support the Office 365 click to run version of Word. If you have Office 365 click to run, you can use Mendeley's new application for citation, which has fixed most of the bugs from the old citation plugin. Install here.

Visit the Mendeley Support Center for more information.
