Mendeley is a free reference manager and academic social network. Make your own fully-searchable library in seconds, cite as you write, and read and annotate your PDFs on any device.
We encountered Mendeley whilst conducting formal research as part of our Health Services Capability and Low Carbon Living interests as part of Postgrad study and Academic-Industry collaborations. Value was immediately evident in having a research focussed social network that simplified the process of reference citing and storage in a single platform that is also mobile device friendly.
Coming on board as Mendeley Advisors allows us to act as a reference point for people and institutions who want to know how to make the process of research collaborations more seamless, whilst preserving the sort of reference and collaboration structures you need when doing academic and inter-disciplinary research.
5 ways Mendeley helps:
1. All your research in one place
2. Read+Annotate on the go;
3. Manage Citation and Bibliographies;
4. Enable Sharing + Collaboration;
5. Showcasing your work.
