We are solving two productivity problems in individual and collaborative scientific research.
1) Every researcher needs to read, retain, & cite hundreds of papers, Mendeley automates desktop document management. but it’s mostly manual work.
2) Research is inherently social (“Standing on the shoulders of giants”), but the tools and data aren’t.
2) Research is inherently social (“Standing on the shoulders of giants”), Mendeley turns research documents into social objects in the cloud. but the tools and data aren’t.
We’re building a crowdsourced research database with a unique layer of social & real-time usage stats.
