  • Intro, and a little bit about myself?
    Mendeley is what we call Reference Management Software – you may have come across RefWorks or EndNote before
    - it stores all of your citation details for the papers you have read helping you to organise and find them when looking for evidence or if writing an article or assignment for a course

    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed
  • The old way of saving article pdfs! You can see my attempt at organising it – but not helpful when the article doesn’t fall under that category (see: loads of one-off topic articles not in folders!)
    Not easy to sift through, or find a particular article if it’s file name doesn’t help jog your memory
    Makes it difficult to build bibliographies when writing your own papers or course assignments
  • Add citations to Mendeley
    Add tags to help you find articles as well as sort into folders
    Save the pdf with the citation! And add annotations and notes to your pdfs and then share them with colleagues and interest groups (ability to share them is what makes Mendeley stand out from EndNote and RefWorks)
  • Demo this!
    Adductor tenotomy as a treatment for groin pain in professional soccer players
    Can log in online from any computer – making it easy to add articles from work and from home
    - Can install Desktop version on your main computer as well as access it online and using iPad/iPhone apps
    - You can even drag and drop pdfs to add them, as well as set up a ‘To Watch’ folder on your Desktop to automatically add files that you save there!
  • Mendeley has plug-ins for Word (Mac and PC), OpenOffice and BibTeX and has thousands of citation styles saved
