Elsevier Acquires Mendeley, An Innovative, Cloud-based Research Management And Social Collaboration Platform

LONDON, April 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Mendeley users to benefit from  seamless access to Elsevier's leading content  and workflow tools , while Elsevier expands researcher workflow offerings and builds greater engagement with its users

Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, announced today the acquisition of Mendeley, a London-based company that operates a global research management and collaboration platform. Researchers worldwide use Mendeley's desktop and cloud-based tools to manage and annotate documents, create citations and bibliographies, collaborate on research projects and network with fellow academics.

"Mendeley is an innovative company with great culture, talent and collaborative spirit, and we will keep it that way," said Olivier Dumon, Managing Director of Academic and Government Research Markets at Elsevier. "Not only that, but together we intend to scale and evolve Mendeley in ways that benefit the entire research community. We will provide greater access to content, data, and analytics tools to Mendeley's users and its flourishing third-party app ecosystem, all of which will enable us to increase both Elsevier's and Mendeley's engagement with researchers."

"Our vision is to make science more collaborative and open, and now we have the support of the world's largest science information provider, whose resources will enable us to accelerate our progress towards this vision," said Victor Henning, PhD, Co-Founder and CEO of Mendeley. "Above all, we will remember what has made Mendeley a success: ensuring that everything we do makes our users' lives easier."

Launched in late 2008, Mendeley was the brainchild of three PhD students wanting an easier way to manage their research papers and collaborate with colleagues overseas. They developed a desktop app that could automatically extract metadata and keywords from PDFs, thus turning loose collections of PDFs into structured, searchable research paper databases that were synchronized to the cloud.
