Mendeley for iOS

The Mendeley Application was retired in early 2021

Importing documents

It is possible to add references to your library via your iOS app although Mendeley still recommends using Mendeley desktop as the preferred pathway.

The app allows you to add PDF documents into Mendeley once they have been opened in another app. To do this, simply tap on the 'open in' icon in the right-hand corner of the screen.

The app will then attempt to get the details of the paper to add to the reference information. This will only happen the first time the PDF is added to the library.

NB. Internet connection is needed to gather the reference information so ensure that you are connected before adding a reference to your library.
