Mendeley: how can you cite while you write?

There are many advantages to citing while you are writing (as opposed to adding all the references after you've finished your paper).

  • You will be less likely to forget to cite sources (so a lower chance to accidentally plagiarise).
  • You will remember where to put the sources.
  • It is also easier to find the sources when you are writing than weeks or months after you've written that particular part of your paper.
  • Reference software like Mendeley also makes it easier to adjust the citation style or to edit references.
