Mendeley is a free reference manager that can help you collect references, organize your citations, and create bibliographies. The strength of Mendeley, however, is what it adds to that. Mendeley is also an academic social network that enables you to share your research with others. Researchers can collaborate online in public or private groups, and search for papers in the Mendeley group database of over 30 million papers. Mendeley can help you connect with other scholars and the latest research in your subject area. Because Mendeley is now owned by Elsevier, the leading provider of science and health information, it integrates with Science-Direct

  •  Collect references from the Web and GSU databases
