The setting of appropriate reference style of journal manually is not easy and it is very tedious task. If MENDELEY PLUGIN is added to Microsoft Word, in the process of rewriting the lines in content making, it will automatically updates the reference number and reference position. In MENDELEY once we add the paper to library and click the paper, the entire data is absorbed from PDF and adjusted according to our requirement without mistakes and also we can customize our own reference style. The session will eye opens on the clarity of using MENDELEY for our research.
