Today I will be discussing how to insert multiple in-text citations in MS Word using Mendeley. We can use Mendeley to insert single or multiple in-text citations when the need arises. It is quite simple and straight forward. Follow the steps below to insert multiple in-text citations:
1. With your word processor application open (for example MS Word) type in words you need to cite from multiple sources, and then click on ALT + M key on your keyboard. This opens a Mendeley dialog box on your MS Word application.
2. In the search bar of the dialog box, type in the name of the author or the title of the article you need to cite. When you are done selecting the article, click on the ENTER key on your keyboard. This chooses the article to be inserted into the MS Word as in-text citation.
3. Repeat step 2 above again to select and choose another reference source to cite. Repeat the process multiple times to select multiple references to insert as in-text citations.
4. When you are done selecting the references, click on the ENTER or the OK key to insert all the selected references as in-text citations in your MS Word document.
5. Another alternative way to go about this is: after following step 1,click on the “Go to Mendeley Desktop” tab in the dialog box that popped up. This opens the full Mendeley Desktop application Graphical User Interface (GUI). Holding on the CTRL key on your keyboard, select multiple references you wish to cite as in-text citations in your MS Word document. When you are done selecting them, click on the CITE tab at the top of the application. This will insert all the selected references as Mendeley formatted in-text citations into your MS Word document.Follow/Contact EduTechTainMent:
