So I sent out this tweet yesterday and it produced a bit of a response, so I thought it would be good to get an idea of how people reference when writing papers and grants:
Just co-wrote first paper in LaTeX using overleaf.
Not a chance in hell this is easier than MS Word + Mendeley plug in 😉

Here is how I do it in Word and Mendeley.
1) Create a new group in Mendeley Desktop
2) Find a paper I want to cite in pubmed
3) Click on the Mendeley Chrome plug-in and save it to my new group
4) Click “insert a citation in Word”:
5) Search and add the citation in the Mendeley pop-up:
6) Change the style to something I want….
7) here choosing “Genome Biology”
8) Add my bibliography by clicking “Insert Bibliography” in Word:
9) Rinse and repeat and I generally add publications iteratively as I write 🙂
In an ideal world this would spurn many other blog posts where people show how they use alternate reference managers 🙂
