Recover Mendeley references from Word

Reference Extractor is a free tool to extract Zotero and Mendeley references from Microsoft Word .docx documents. It only works with active citations that have been inserted through the Zotero or Mendeley word processor plugins, and that haven’t been converted to plain text. The tool runs locally on your computer, keeping your Word documents and extracted citations private.
