...and aggregates research data in the cloud

Install Mendeley Desktop

Mendeley extracts research data…

Collecting rich signals

from domain experts.


Cloud Library

Work

Mobile

Home


Shared Folder


Read papers + keep track of notes

470M documents


Taking some misery out of writing


Mendeley Research Catalog

New forms of discovery

  • Mendeley Suggest

    • personalized recommendations based on reading history

  • related articles

    • relatedness based on document similarity

  • recommender frameworks

    • implement recommendations as a service

  • third-party recommender services

    • serve niche audiences


Information Extraction


We are publishing this data to the LOD cloud

http://code-research.eu/


Connecting researchers

Import

Search

Read

Annotate

Organize

Write


Data we collect

  • Metadata about the paper

    • title, author, tags, annotations, reads, shares, groups

  • Metadata about the researcher

    • discipline, educational status, country, papers they’ve authored, presentations, expertise


2.7M researchers


Defining readership

  • Each document addition is a “read”

  • stamped with metadata describing the context of the read event

  • a read is like a citation, but faster and captures more


research impacts more than authors


Citations are slow


Mendeley is fast


Readership vs. citations

  • it comes with a payload of metadata

  • it accrues faster

  • it illuminates previously hidden impact


altmetrics show broader impact

  • Attribution

  • Gaming

  • Filtration

What would people build if they could get the data?

  • Impact Story – get credit for all your work

  • PLOS ALM – article-level metrics for papers

  • Plum Analytics – bespoke analytics for libraries (EBSCO)

  • Altmetric.com – altmetrics for publishers. (Digital Science)
