Mendeley is used to organize our research. We provide forensic evaluations for the courts and saving and organizing research articles to be placed in the back of our bibliography section is required. Mendeley can be added as an add-in into Microsoft Word and also easily copied into the correct reference format, saving us time and headache.
  • Easily works with Word
  • Importing different reference formats
  • Organization
  • Finding relevant references
  • Some bugs noted with Word, especially when tables are included, had to uninstall add-in from Word for the tables to work correctly.
  • Finding books for research and being able to place the titles as references. We can import them from other sources, however, working, for instance, in conjunction with Google, would help to gather citations from other relevant work other than journal articles.
It has saved our company time and resources by organizing all relevant citations for us. It is helpful for those wishing to organize their citations and to quickly copy the citations into the body of your work.

As a graduate student, I use Mendeley both individually, managing references for my own research, and as part of a group of 4-5 research staff. I've used Mendeley to manage >800 citations across the systematic review pipeline -- from downloading titles and abstracts, screening titles and abstracts using multiple reviewers (though group folders), and ultimately full-text review and markup. I also used Mendeley for a range of academic work to archive and index my needed sources.
  • Easy to use interface
  • The use of font size and style makes information easily discoverable within the article previews
  • Drag-and-drop functions make article indexing particularly simple
  • Syncing errors when using multiple devices occur infrequently (but still too often), leading to lost work and retrieved articles
  • Mendeley's servers sometimes are down, which prevents group work from being conducted on multiple machines through group folders
If you are planning on using a citation manager on a single device for solo citation management, Mendeley is perfectly suited to your needs. If you need to do work on multiple machines or as part of a collaboration, I think Mendeley has some work to do before it is right for you.

Used by our department at this time. Used by employees who are involved in research to store, organize and easily access research articles for various projects.
  • Organize articles
  • Insert references in manuscript
  • Create Bibliography
  • Resolving duplication of articles
  • Extract information from websites
It is useful for individual researchers to organize, sort and reference relevant articles for a project and insert references and bibliography that adjusts with adjustment of text in a manuscript.

Also useful for multiple researchers to collaborate and share articles and references and sort information
May not be as useful for small scale case reports
