In reality there are many students at the Faculty of Engineering, University of Sulawesi Barat who do not understand this well, for example: not paraphrasing quotations and not including reference sources correctly. Mendeley application can help students in writing scientific papers or final assignments but it still underutilized by students. This shows the importance of reference citing skills and utilizing the Mendeley application. So, it is necessary to conduct scientific paper citation training. The training was done through planning, training and evaluation activities. Planning aims to prepare and determine the needs during the training.
