Mendeley Vision Presentation Salk Institute 2010 06-15 WG Mendeley Vision Presentation Salk Institute 2010 06-15 WG Presentation Transcript

  • www.mendeley.com
  • A London-based team of 26 researchers and software developers from...
    Supported by:
    ...backed by co-founders and former executives of:
  • 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.
  • works like this:
    3) Last.fm builds your music profile... and the world‘s biggest open music database
    1) Install “Audioscrobbler”
    2) Listen to music
  • Mendeley
    Last.fm
    research libraries
    music libraries
    artists
    researchers
    songs
    papers
    genres
    disciplines
  • Mendeley works like this:
    3) Mendeley aggregates research data in the cloud
    1) Install Mendeley Desktop
    2) Read & write papers
  • 27m research papers (and >500m references) uploaded:
    After 15 months in public beta (v0.9):
  • Top 15 institutions using Mendeley:
    University of Cambridge
    Stanford University
    MIT
    Imperial College London
    Harvard University
    University College London
    University of Oxford
    University of Edinburgh
    University of Michigan
    Max Planck Society
    UC Berkeley
    Cornell University
    Princeton University
    University of Wisconsin
    Columbia University
    After 15 months in public beta (v0.9):
  • Why real-time stats matter to science
    Scientific careers
    Jobs
    Grant Funding
    Tenure
    Prestige
    The “Impact Factor“
  • PLoSONE ranked as 5th most read biological sciences journal on Mendeley
    Mendeley Real-Time Stats:
  • Dr. Peter Binfield, Editor of PLoS ONE:
    Mendeley Real-Time Stats:
    Dr. Werner Vogels, CTO Amazon.com
  • Select relation:
    supports
    refutes
    complements
    uses same method
    ...
    Result:
    A human-curated, constantly evolving semantic article database
  • How Mendeley will support the workflow:
    Reference/PDFManagement
    Writing/Bibliographies
    Search/Recommendations
    Collaboration
