Adding a citation file from a database
For most databases, you will need to select all the citations you want to send and Export as an RIS file type. For Pubmed, you can click Send To: and choose Citation Manager (for batches of up to 200 articles) or File and then Medline format (for all the articles at once).
Once you have created your citation file, you can use the Add button in Mendeley to import the file.
Using Mendeley's web importer tool
The example below demonstrates saving two articles from PubMed's Clipboard.
Note that the Web Importer will retrieve the PDF for freely available articles, but not for articles acquired through UNC subscriptions.

Review added citations
It is possible to transfer information about an article you're reading on the Browzine app to Mendeley.
It is important to keep only one instance of an article in your Mendeley database. Multiple instances of the same article can be confusing when you are citing while writing. It is a good idea to check your database for duplicates before you start to write a new document.
