As you may have noticed by now, our developers have been working hard to redesign profile pages to give you a fresh new professional public face.
We’ve added an interactive completion widget to make completing your profile easy, which will help you connect and build your research network. Adding your photo, research interests and institution makes your account more personal and discoverable. Moreover, if you add your publications, your Mendeley readership statistics will be displayed. In the future, we will be including more impact metrics to help showcase your work.
Plus, the responsive design gives all users a superior viewing experience, regardless of which device they are using.
The new profile pages are part of a bigger project to make your profiles more visible to the wider research community. Over the next year, we will be improving the dashboard and feed features to bring you more relevant information and recommendations.
We will also tighten integration with Scopus and other Elsevier products to bring in more data and automation. This means less work to build and maintain your profile, and the ability to showcase your other professional activities on your page!
We are currently working to improve further features of the new profile pages, including making all CV sections editable again, making follower/following lists available, and adding a “Save to Mendeley” button for individual publications as a more direct option to importing articles to your library.
As always, feel free to get in contact with us any time, we would love to hear your feedback as it will drive further improvements and keep our developers slogging away for your benefit.
