Hooray! The peer reviews are in: My paper “The Theory of Reasoned Action: Does It Lack Emotion?” (which is part of my Ph.D. dissertation) was accepted at the American Marketing Association’s 2008 Summer Marketing Educator’s Conference, which means I get to travel to San Diego in August to meet up with some of my friends in the academic community. The “Summer Ed” also brings forth fond memories…
As I explained in our first post, our Mendeley software client wants to make your life as a researcher easier by automatically extracting all the metadata (authors, title, journal etc.) from your academic library – no need to type it in manually anymore! Sometimes, though, our extraction algorithm may get it wrong. Like today. Hilarity ensued.
Welcome! Many people have asked us: “Why can’t we see something on your website yet?” This is our blog, for a start. So who are we? Jan, Victor and Paul, two Ph.D. students and a Computer Science grad working in London. While we always loved doing research, we were constantly wondering why managing and sharing literature would have to be such a hassle. Discovering new papers, topics and people in your research field and keeping track of them could also be easier.
So that’s what we set out to do. Our free software automates literature management and sharing, so you can focus more on your research. You can also get recommendations about papers and researchers that may interest you, discover which topics are up and coming in your field, and see how the readership of your own publications is evolving.
All of this will be available to you when we launch our beta version in April 2008, and we will add new features based on your wishes and feedback. We’re looking forward to building something amazing for the academic community together with you.
