Mendeley and Styles
Mendeley calls referencing styles such as APA and Vancouver Citation Styles because this describes the style in which the Mendeley software 'outputs' your references.
What style should you use?
Check with your Faculty, School, supervisor or lecturer if they have a preferred style. For more information on the various styles see the Referencing section of the Library's Referencing Guides web page.
Information about the different Reference styles
When you download the Mendeley program to your computer it comes with a small number of the most popular output styles, also used at UWA. However these styles may not always output references which match the UWA approved styles detailed in the Library Referencing Guides. Please refer to the Guides under the link Referencing to learn more.
The Library has created a customised style for the Vancouver.Referencing Style (based on Citing Medicine). You can download the style from the Vancouver Referencing Guide
This style can be downloaded from the table below and imported into your Mendeley program.
