A highly acclaimed reference management application that allows researchers to organize documents, collaborate with others online, and discover the latest research trends and statistics is now available to all UM students, faculty, and staff. The University of Miami recently subscribed to Mendeley Institutional Edition, an institutional version of Mendeley with premium user features and additional institutional support.
To celebrate the purchase of this new product, UM and Elsevier, Mendeley’s parent company, are presenting a training session for UM researchers and all students or employees that would like to learn more about using the Mendeley Institutional Edition and how it can support their research.

An Amazon Kindle Fire HD will be raffled off at the end of the training session.
Mendeley is cross-platform and supported by all major browsers. With more than three million users, the program is know for
- driving researcher productivity by helping users manage, read, share, annotate and cite papers and projects.
- enabling collaboration and knowledge sharing by hosting a network for users to connect with like-minded researchers and discover research trends and statistics.
- providing a crowdsourced database with a unique layer of social research information and Open API, leading to additional insights, and is useful for app-building.
