Synchronize across devices

Mendeley Sync lets you synchronize your data across devices so access your research wherever you go.

Why is Sync useful?

Sync makes it easy to get up and go and have all your research waiting for you on your home computer, work computer, iPhone or iPad - just the way you left it.
