Sometimes you don't have a PDF and you want to add an article, book, or another document in Mendeley. Other times, pulling in a PDF works very poorly and the digital object identifier (DOI) button in Mendeley Desktop does not help or actually makes matters worse. It is good to try the Save to Mendeley Button in these cases.
Install this button in your favorite browser. First, select Tools from the Mendeley Desktop menu, then Install Web Importer. The Web page provides instructions about installing.
When using this button, it is likely that you will need to edit some fields in Mendeley. If many fields are missing and there is a DOI, you might be able to use the DOI button to fill in some additional information. Keep in mind the DOI button does not always help. There are times that it pulls completely incorrect information.
Sometimes the Save to Mendeley button can't find any bibliographic information. When this happens, you might need to import a RIS file if you can. Otherwise, you might be forced to manually enter the information.
At this time, Download PDFs if available checkbox isn't working.
