8 Advantages of Mendeley to Make it Easier for Writers!
Reference Management Software is an automated software that helps researchers manage references documents that were cited in a research. For authors of scientific articles, national and international indexes such as Scopus and SINTA required authors to input bibliographic data manually. Reference software options that can be used by researchers include Mendeley, Zotero, EndNote, Citavi, and others. Nowadays, Mendeley is one of the most popular RMS used by both researchers and journal editors. Besides the fact that its is easy to use, here are some advantages of using Mendeley:
1. It is free
Since it was acquired by Elsevier in 2008, Mendeley has also routinely updated its software. By using a Mendeley account, you can log in to the Scopus overview to access Scopus content coverage, source list, abandoned source list, and others. This is useful for Mendeley users such as students, teachers, and researchers.
2. Multiplatform & mobile device support
