As of April 2016, the UvA has a subscription to the Mendeley Institutional Edition citation software, to begin with for one year only. Compared to the free version, the Institutional Edition has a number of advantages: 20 GB storage space and an unlimited number of private groups with max. 25 members each. RefWorks remains the standard citation manager at the UvA; Mendeley is an extra option.
If you already have a Mendeley account, you can upgrade it to the Institutional Edition. Use you UvA email address to do this.
