Mendeley: Web Importer

Mendeley Web Importer

The Mendeley Web Importer is a browser extension and import papers, web pages and other documents directly into your reference library from academic databases, publisher pages, or journal collections. Please note: While the Mendeley Web Importer works with most databases, it does NOT always bring in the PDF article with the reference. 

The Mendeley Web Importer generally works best to bring in the PDF from the article page, rather than the search results page.
