A Reference Manager in a Social Network

A couple of weeks ago a friend of mine @josehfloresmd recommended a reference manager that had an innovative concept. He recommended  Mendeley, a free reference manager and academic social network that can help you organize your research, collaborate with others online, and discover the latest research. 

I was so impressed with it and how easy it was to use that decided to write this blog about it and try no to bore you. These are the reasons I liked it. If you read this and are into research… Give it a try.

1) Easily find and store bibliographies

2) Upload the article pdf to your account and access it from any computer, smartphone or tablet with a connection to the internet.

3) Share the articles, pdfs, etc with others in specific groups.  Ex. If your research team is working on a paper they can all have access the files uploaded and modify as needed.

4) Find people with similar interests to your line of work.

5) The ease of use is impressive and the best of all it is FREE!


In brief, if you are into research and want something fresh, give Mendeley a try… I doubt youll be dissapointed.
