Managing and sharing references and documents


I can't find that article about memory and encefalitis I downloaded a while ago...
Where did I put the pdf Paul sent me yesterday?
I think you'd be interested in the article by this author, in that journal, from the year...
Have you read this author's latest work?” ...

Scientific information is increasingly abundant, and the challenge is not just accessing it, but organizing it and sharing it in a time-saving and efficient fashion. But with the currently available tools, the scenarios we just pictured belong to the past.

Mendeley does more than organizing and sharing references and documents. In fact, it does a whole lot more.

Mendeley is a desktop and web application for Linux, Mac and Windows which extracts bibliographic information directly from the desired PDF documents and then builds a database that can then be exported to any format we desire, and shared with the colleagues we wish (quite useful for research groups) or the larger Mendeley community.

Scribd is, in short, the YouTube of written documents.

We may upload any document we wish (Word, PDF, PowerPoint): Scribd turns it into a web file (iPaper) viewable online, from any place, at any time; and of course, shareable with anyone we desire.

Although it is not specifically designed for scholarly papers, but to all kinds of written documents, its flexibility and unspecificity allow for countless uses and offer great advantages to scientific research.
