Mendeley is a free reference manager and academic social network that helps to organise research findings, collaborate with others online, and discover the latest research.

Mendeley allows users to:

  • Automatically generate bibliographies
  • Collaborate easily with other researchers online
  • Easily import papers from other research software
  • Find relevant papers based on what they’re reading
  • Access papers from anywhere online
  • Read papers on-the-go with the new iPhone app
Mendeley was founded in November 2007 by three German PhD students and is based in London. The organisation has won several awards: the "European Start-up of the Year 2009", the TechCrunch Europas "Best Social Innovation Which Benefits Society 2009", and The Guardian ranked it sixth in the "Top 100 tech media companies".
