In this article I share a tutorial on how to easily install Mendeley Cite in Microsoft Office Word. Previously I also made a video tutorial about Learning Mendeley Cite | Mendeley Reference Manager.
Mendeley Cite is an Add-ins developed by Elsevier with new features and functionality being added regularly. It was originally called Mendeley Citation Plugin for Word, which was installed on the Mendeley Desktop.
Office Compatible Version
Before installing Mendeley Cite you must first know what versions of Office are compatible to install Mendeley Cite. Because not all versions of Ms Word can be compatible with Mendeley Cite.
Mendeley confirmed that:
Mendeley Cite is compatible with Microsoft Office 365, Microsoft Word versions 2016 and above and with the Microsoft Word app for iPad®Mendeley
This means if you use Ms. Office 2007, 2010, 2013 or essentially Office under 2016 is not compatible with Mendeley Cite. I actually recommend that you use Office 365 whose features are always updated all the time.
