Tips & Tricks: How to Tailor Mendeley Newsfeed  

We launched our Mendeley Newsfeed a year ago, but it hasn’t remained stagnant: we’re constantly working with researchers to create a more useful newsfeed.

Here are our top four tips on how to tailor newsfeed content:

  1. URLs in a post can be expanded out to show the contents of the URL. This means followers will see a preview and image of the link contents.
  2. Tag one of your followers in a post if you want a specific person to respond to a question or comment – they will be notified in the navigation bar and their name is clickable in the post.
  3. Add a reference to a post, so you can refer to a specific article or share an article, and your followers can see the metadata and save to library without you needing to copy and paste it.
  4. Add images to the post if you need to ask a question about a specific picture or share an image with your followers

 

We’re still making improvements, based on your feedback and needs, so watch this space!
