Does anyone know a quicker or more automatic way to get articles downloaded on Mendeley desktop?

My boss (neuroscience professor) wants me to import all of her authored online journal articles (in PDF form) into Mendeley desktop. So far, I’ve been using PubMed to click on each article of hers, then accessing the PDFs through the specific journals (behind the paywall), and then downloading the papers one by one. Does anyone know a quicker or more automatic way to get articles downloaded on Mendeley desktop? Perhaps through an API? Also, does anyone know a way to quickly / automatically import citations that are used within an online journal article?

Papers/Mendeley/Sente/Bookends for the humanities?

I know that Papers, Mendeley, Bookends, and Sente are mentioned as excellent Mac programs, but according to various forum posts around the web I've heard that they're far better for the sciences.

I'm trying to find a way of determining the "trustworthiness", for lack of a better term, of a scientific study. To do so, I would really like to know if there are systematic methods you can use to map out disciplines in which you are not already an expert. Help me sort this out. [more inside]

Second-degree citations in MLA

MLA Citation Filter: The information I'm citing was found on a website. However, the person who made the website did not create this information. The information I'm putting into my paper is all from articles cited on the website; it's either a direct quote from the journal article that I copied and pasted from the website, or it's factual information from the articles that is presented and cited by the website author.

In my paper's bibliography, how should I cite the copied portions of journal articles? How should I cite the facts from the journal articles that are presented by the website's author? Do I cite the journal article, or the website?
