On Mendeley Web, click on the Groups tab and then on the green button that says Create New Group.
Finding Existing Groups
You can also browse groups under the Groups tab.
You can build a list of contacts on Mendeley. You can search for people already on Mendeley by using the search box on Mendeley Web, viewing their Mendeley profile, and then asking if you can add them to your contacts.
You can also invite non-users to join Mendeley.
Mendeley's network includes the sharing of documents in a crowd sourced online catalog consisting of millions of papers.
You can find it on Mendeley Desktop under the Papers tab. You can search topics by keyword, and there's an advanced search to limit your search by field, document type, date range or discipline.
References can be downloaded to your own Mendeley library. You can refine your search results to Open Access documents. You can also click to see related results.
It's simple to add your own publications to the database. This could help get your work noticed in the academic community. Just select your publications in your Mendeley library on Mendeley Desktop and drag into the My Publications folder. Mendeley provides statistics of the community's interest in your work.
Your Mendeley Profile is a way to communicate your research interests and academic work to other members of the Mendeley community.
To build your profile, go to Mendeley Web and on the drop down menu under My Account, click on Edit My Profile.
Your profile can include your position, organization, academic discipline, research interests, biographical information, professional experience, education, publications, awards, grants, contact information and a photo. A completed profile could help build your research presence on the Web.
