Mendeley FAQ

1) There is no Mendeley Toolbar in my MS Word 2016.  What can I do?

Make sure you updated your Mendeley to the latest version.  You can click Help > Check for updates > Check Now to install the latest verision.

You should then able to find the Mendeley tools under Add-ins tab in MS Word 2016.  Please ensure you have already installed the MS Word Plugin by clicking Tools > Install Word Plugin. Please click here for further information.

2) How can I know which fields in Mendeley I should input for different types of references (e.g., journal article, webpages)?

Although Mendeley is a convenient tool to manage and insert citations, you still need to get familiar with the citation style that you are using.  You can refer to the Referencing Guide from ELC (English Language Center) below for more information:
