Make Mendeley compatible with Scrivener

It would be great if Mendeley worked with Scrivener for writing large bodies of work, like books, dissertations etc. I'm about to start a Ph.D. and thinking I will have to stop using Mendeley and export all my references to a referencing system that is compatible.

    Yes, please please please make an integration with scrivener. I have now survived to write my articles for my PhD in word, because I could not keep track of references in scrivener. But now I am starting the actual long dissertation which I will not survive writing in word!!!

    Am thinking of starting to use Scrivener for my PhD, but without Mendeley integration, it would be hard to keep track of all the references! Please provide integration!

    Vote #1000. And I couldn't agree more. Mendeley has some advantages over Endnote for me, but without a working integration with Scrivener it's just not up to the task of serious academic use.

    Agreed. However, please offer users the choice of whether to have the option to simply insert the author-date format for citations, e.g. (AuthorName, 2014) Please put this on your development roadmap. Scrivener is a wonderful text/outline/organization writing tool (as opposed to a tool such as Word or Pages that is oriented towards page layout writing.

    Thank you

    Agreed! After getting hooked on the features of Scrivener, I would be loath to not have the best workflow.

    Ack! I am trying out Scrivner and really like it, but there's no Mendeley integration!? I would love this feature; I'd hate to have to switch reference managers.

    Agreed! It would have been great to have my Mendeley in one of the split windows in Scrivener. I just wrote my thesis flipping between Evernote, Mendeley and Scrivener.

    This would be an ideal addition to both popular programs. End Note is quite expensive unless your institution has a deal going, this licence also doesn't last once you are not a student. The guys at Scrivener would be helpful integrating this functionality too I'm sure.
    Looking forward to this request hitting 1000 votes.

    very very keen to have this. Scrivener works a charm but it is a real nuisance not having a reference app that integrates appropriately
