With Mendeley you can cite while you write.
Just go to References menu in your Word doc and click Insert citation. You can change your citation format inside the word document. See the photo below.
After you click OK, the in-text citation will be incorporated in your paragraph. No more formating, just choose the format style in the menu and you are good to go.
So, you are now excited to finish your research proposal.
Here is the last magic I will show you.
(In my previous research writing, I do this manually. I add the references one by one, format them accordingly to the style of journal or publisher. Well, like you, I really hate this process.)
6. Insert Bibliography
Once done with your write up, with all the in-text citation included in your manuscript, you are now ready for the final process – to insert bibliography.
Unlike the manual process, it will take hours or even 1 day to do all the proper referencing. I know that most of you hate this too.
