Just before the new year holidays, I posted a blog on online reference management tools, specifically Mendeley, which has been growing in popularity within the scientific community. If you want to organize your references; annotate PDF research papers as is and share them with colleagues and others , Mendeley might be a good place to start.
In essence, there are two levels when it comes to using Mendeley:
- Mendeley Desktop, a desktop tool that allows users to collect and organize research papers into virtual libraries, and to set up shared collections for research projects
- Mendeley Web, a social network arm for academics and a place to access real-time readership statistics about papers and authors, discover research trends and connect with like-minded researchers.
To know more about Mendeley and how to use this application to your advantage, sign up for our webinar (jointly organized by Mendeley and the ICT-KM Program, together with several CGIAR centers). Details below:
