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.

    As an academic who recently discovered the wonders of Scrivener, I can't imagine going back to writing any other way. I love Mendeley, too, and I hate being forced to choose between an exceptional writing system and the mechanics of inserting citations.

    Scrivener is a very useful tool. Mendeley should hop to. I will stop using Mendeley until and unless, it allows integration with Scrivener. For writing manuscripts/thesis, and whatnot organization and writing trumps easy citation/reference ability.

    Gone three years, since the first post of these topic (and are other posts with the same basic idea, here and trough www)

    Is Mendeley working on this?

  • Bradley FayBradley Fay commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Has this been incorporated into the Mendeley Road map yet? Is it even possible to create the integration with Scrivener?

    Yes, I completely agree with Clemen. I don't see the point why such an integration is not on your short-term roadmap. With 810 votes for this only here on the feedback page!

    Thank you Charlotte for your reply.

    I am giving up Mendeley and moving on to use other software. This is just ridiculous to wait for your folks for over 1 year for a simple integration.

    Unfortunately this integration is not on our short-term roadmap. This means we will not begin work on this in the next 3-6 months. Apologies for any inconvenience this may cause you.

    This is a great idea. I use both scrivener and mendeley and would really appreciate the ability to utilize the two together.

    I too have just stumbled upon Scrivener and have already started moving my MFA Thesis from Pages and Word to Scrivener. I am also looking for a free citations and reference management tool to replace Mendeley. Paper is way to expensive put from the demos, it looks pretty sweet. I am even contemplating scheduling my thesis to work with Paper's 30 day free trial. Sorry if I sound like I am promoting for that other software but I hope the folks at Mendeley have heard enough to encourage some type of change or integration with Scrivener.
