Mendeley is a free reference manager, PDF organizer, and academic social network that can help you organize your research, collaborate with others online, and discover related research. Mendeley is based on a desktop application (as well as iPhone and iPad apps) and an online account, both supported on multiple platforms. Mendeley extracts metadata from your PDF and other files (Office documents such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint) and helps you to index and organize your collection for easy searching and citing.
Is Mendeley for all users? Not necessarily. If you have a large collection of digitally-born PDF articles and research notes, it may assist you with organizing your research, annotating and highlighting your PDFs, and collaborating with your colleagues. However, if your collection of references is mostly based on books and scanned PDFs that were not OCR'd (optimized for full-text searching with Optical Character Recognition), this reference manager may not fit your needs.
