Mendeley's top time-saver tips for early career researchers.

So you’ve slaved away all year long, passing up pool party and barbecue invitations to feed the needs of the research beast, and you’ve finally got something to show for it. The next question is how do you get it published, where, and what do you do after that so it doesn’t end up with two readers, one of which is your mom? We won’t presume to tell you where, but we do have a few tips for things to consider, which you may have missed because you were slaving away at the bench or in the library like a good student and not reading up on all the cool stuff that’s happened this summer in the exciting world of academic publishing. So here’s our summary of the new (and we presume you’ve already heard the old from your PI).Read More »

Check out academic lectures on Seminar Streams

Seminar streams is a new service that hosts open access lectures and academic talks. They’ve already got some great academic content such as this talk about membrane protein assembly and this one about the inflammation-cancer link via NF-kappa B and HIF. We think open access academic video content is a great addition to what’s available online, joining such efforts as the Journal of Visualized Experiments.

One thing I’d like to see more of from Seminar Streams is a clear indication of which content is available for re-use. Flickr does a good job of this.

Managing your research the modern way: search as an interface to your research

connected graphThis post is the second in a series, looking back over the changes in information management over the past decade. Three major and interrelated developments are the move to querying databases of information as opposed to loading information from individual files, the practice of tagging bits of information as opposed to filing things in a hierarchical folder structure, and the representation of information as a temporal stream as opposed to a static page. This post is about the move to databases from filing systems, and how that improves your workflow.Read More »

Managing your library the modern way with tags and filters.

delicious-logoAs the year gets to the end, everyone writes “Best of” lists for the past year. I thought I would do something similar, but since we’re at the end of not only a year, but a decade, it’s worthwhile to reflect on the changes in how people manage and organize their increasingly digital stores of information. Over the next week, I’ll highlight some major developments and discuss how they’ve informed the development of Mendeley. This week it’s the practice of tagging bits of information as opposed to filing things in a hierarchical folder structure, with posts on the move to querying databases of information as opposed to loading information from individual files and the representation of information as a temporal stream as opposed to a static page to come next week.Read More »

Mendeley Webinars take us around the globe

Webinar ScreenshotLast week we hosted two Webinars for scientists and information professionals from the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR), an international network of research institutions as well as governmental and non-governmental organizations. CGIAR is aiming to achieve sustainable food security and reduce poverty in developing countries using scientific research and research-related activities in the fields of agriculture, forestry, fisheries, policy, and the environment. We are always pleased to find out about new areas of research, and to see that many people are already using Mendeley. Over at CGIAR’s ICT and Knowledge Management Department, Mendeley is widely considered to be an “intuitive, easy-to-use tool for online reference management” – Thanks, Meena!

So how global is global, then? Looking at the attendees of last week’s webinars: very, very global! Mendeley is being used in so many diverse locations – there were CGIAR researchers, librarians, and knowledge management specialists from Bangladesh, Cambodia, China, Colombia, Egypt, Germany, India, Malaysia, Nigeria, the Philippines, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Syria, the UK and the USA. And it’s great to see that we can help to make research easier.

We are planning to offer more webinars very soon. If you or your organization is interested in a tailor-made web seminar, please let us know at community@mendeley.com.
