We know that researchers love Mendeley – the free reference manager and academia’s answer to LinkedIn. Academics can use it to (in Mendeley’s words) “manage your research, showcase your work, connect and collaborate with over five million researchers worldwide”. So, if you’re a Mendeley fan, we want to make it as easy as possible for you to save an Emerald journal article or book chapter to your personal Mendeley library.
We had the option there to do that on Emerald Insight already, but it was hidden as a tiny social share button in the ‘plus others’ section of our social share list on article pages, so it was pretty hard to find. The first thing we’ve done to fix this is make the Mendeley button appear in that social share list, alongside the share to Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn buttons down the right-hand column of the article pages.
However, the more interesting and useful thing we’ve done is create a big new button right at the top of the article page – you can’t really miss it! But here’s a screenshot to prove it anyway.
So now it’s super quick and easy to save all your favourite Emerald journal articles straight to your Mendeley library. We’re still working on rolling the buttons out to book pages, but in the meantime, we hope you find this new little feature useful!
