Mendeley + ShareLaTeX
First, please install Mendeley from its official website. Here is an official YouTube video introducing Mendeley:
There is also a quick tip on easy import using Mendeley. The second way I suggest is using the Mendeley extension for Chrome. The other way to import CS reference is to copy a BibTeX text, paste to the Mendeley application.
As for ShareLaTeX (click me to register), it’s an online LaTeX editor where you can write papers in real-time together with co-authors. The great part of ShareLaTeX is template, real-time version control automatically and co-author chatting. Here is a list of tutorial by ShareLaTeX
EndNote / Mendeley + Word
However, there are some authors that prefer EndNote with Microsoft Word. To use Mendeley with Word, just click Tools->Install Word Plugin. Here is a short 7 minutes tutorial on it:
- How to collaborate？
- In the menu of Endnote, click File->Share… (Reference: http://endnote.com/product-details/library-sharing)
- How to change the format / style of bibliography?
- In the EndNote X7 Panel of Word, in Bibliography section, there is a very tiny icon at the bottom right corner, click it, change the style to numbered.
- Please notice that Mendeley is free but EndNote is not (30-day free trial); some universities or institution bought EndNote though, please Google “the-name-of-your-institution + EndNote” to check whether it’s bought or not.
Finally, enjoy writing!
P.S. There is a WordPress plugin to manage reference for blog writing: https://wordpress.org/plugins/link-to-post/ I’ll take a try later on.
