is a free reference management program and a social network for academics. It supports you in organising your research library, in your collaboration with others via the internet. It also suggests relevant works according to your search behaviour. In comparison to other reference management programs, Mendeley focuses on the collaborative aspect of research. It functions as a network for researches, in other words you can create a personal profile, exchange information with other researchers and view the most frequently requested articles (“hot articles”) which result from usage statistics of documents, authors and publications.

Mendeley can be seen as both an internet and desktop application. Articles are synchronized and can be shared to a certain degree with other members of the scientific social network.
