Mendeley is a global research collaboration platform and academic database. Mendeley’s desktop, mobile and web applications help people to organize, share, and discover new research. Since its launch in 2009, Mendeley has grown to over 3 million users worldwide. The Mendeley API powers hundreds of third-party applications that are making science more social and open. In April 2013 Mendeley was acquired by Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services.
