Swets launches a smart manifesto for Mendeley

leave a comment »

To support the launch of its Mendeley special edition, Swets has just released a subtile and very smart booklet that presents different challenges of the libraries in the digital age. It comes as well to define how social media have taken an important place into the research workflow.

More and more students and researchers are turning to Mendeley to help facilitate their research. Mendeley’s unique, user-led research environment combines a powerful reference management tool with sophisticated social networking software. With more than 1.4 million active users, Mendeley has transformed the academic research landscape, creating new pathways for collaboration among students, professors and their peers around the world“.

A comparison table demonstrates how the collaborative and free tool Mendeley is equal or better than paying or free competitors (Endnote, Zotero, Refworks).

The white paper is free of charge:

Swets. White paper: Where is the library in the digital workflow of research? Research in the age of social media. 2012. 18 p.

As expected since July 2010 (see, the Elsevier social bookmarking service will be discontinued as from April 15, 2011.

Elsevier advices to migrate data to Mendeley or to RefWorks.

A nice bibliography and citations maker

leave a comment »

EasyBib is a web-based bibliography maker, designed by ImagineEasy and now supported by the library cooperative OCLC.

Pick-up your references from various sources (websites, books, articles, etc.), choose your citations format and import your bibliography in MS Word or in Google Doc…

Very intuitive…  Might become a serious competitor of Zotero, Mendeley, RefWorks etc.

A pity: the freemium version gives ads on the right side

From EndNote to Mendeley

with 2 comments

A good overview of main bibliographical tools: EndNote, Reference Manager, RefWorks, Zotero and the last one Mendeley which claims already 100,00 users.

So many tools for a unique usage: to retain the knowledge.
