Managing your references

Using a reference-management tool in the production of your articles or your PhD thesis, is a great advantage. DTU provides students and employees access to Mendeley.

Mendeley is a reference tool which you can use to:

  • organise the references, you cite from in your articles
  • make correct citations quickly
  • generate your bibliography automatically

You can import information about your specific references directly from DTU’s library to Mendeley. The tool is available online, which means that you can log on no matter where you are.

However, Mendeley is more than just a reference manager. With Mendeley you can also:

  • import articles etc. from other research software
  • find relevant articles based on the ones you already have imported 
  • read your articles on the go with Mendeley’s iPhone app

It is an advantage to start using your reference tool from you commence your PhD programme and continue to update it regularly.
