Wrap It Up

You can use Mendeley to improve your writing through the efficient management and formatting of the sources you gather as part of your research processes.

Top tips:

  • Know and understand the protocols of your referencing style thoroughly - although reference management tools save you time, your familiarity with the style/s used in your school or college will enable you to check the accuracy and consistency of the citations in your document every time.
  • Data in, data out - the quality of the information in your Mendeley library will be reflected in your document. Make time to review the accuracy of the references in your library so that your citations and bibliography are accurate and clean.
  • Make regular backups of your library.
  • Create a standout Mendeley profile.

Explore ANU Academic Skills resources for writing support, including why academic integrity matters, principles of referencing, and suggestions for correctly using sources in your writing.
