From Margaret Koopman:
Mendeley is my FAVOURITE resource for organising pdfs. It is a free reference manager AND a social network! It does all the referencing work for you! Just point at the file/s in which you store your pdfs and bingo, the work is done! Well, nearly - you do need to verify the information because some pdfs have iffy quality and then some of the information gets left out!
Mendeley was designed with the medical fraternity in mind, so most of the citation styles which are embedded are for medical journals. If you aim to publish in Nature or Science, then the citation style is there. Aim high!
Do not be despondent, in the PowerPoint presentation I show you how to find the citation styles for biology and ecology journals and add these to your Mendeley Desktop Citation Styles folder.
