New Horizons: From research papers to Pluto


NASA’s New Horizons mission is expected to reach its primary target, Pluto, on July 14th 2015! Mendeley was invited to NASA HQ to witness the close approach of Pluto on the day of this historic encounter.

To mark this amazing occasion and share our excitement, Paul Tavner at Mendeley has written a report – Examining the role of academic publishing in launching and learning from deep space missions! This report contains information about the discovery of Pluto and details of the New Horizons mission, as well as an analysis of collaborations and the measuring of scientific output – the aim of which is to shine a light on the incredible contributions made by scientists to this fantastic accomplishment.

The report is freely available online and download from here!
