Mendeley Desktop software is changing

Mendeley Reference Manager is an online reference management application and is the updated interface designed to replace Mendeley Desktop. It helps you simplify your reference management workflow so you can focus on achieving your goals.

With Mendeley Reference Manager you can:

  • Store, organise and search all your references from just one library
  • Seamlessly insert references and bibliographies into your Microsoft Word documents using Mendeley Cite
  • Read, highlight and annotate PDFs, and keep all your thoughts across multiple documents in one place
  • Collaborate with others by sharing references and ideas

From 23 August 2022, users will no longer be able to download and install the Mendeley Desktop software. However, existing users of Desktop will continue to be able to sign into, use and sync their Mendeley Desktop. It is anticipated that stopping all sign-ins to Mendeley Desktop will be in Summer 2023.

Mendeley Reference Manager can be downloaded now from the Mendeley website. References and folders held in the Desktop version are transferable to the new platform.

Support on how to do this can be found in our updated Mendeley Learn module which also includes support materials on Learn to reflect both the Desktop and Reference Manager versions.
