Mendeley Institutional Edition Powered by Swets Goes Live

Mendeley Institutional Edition (MIE) Powered by Swets goes live. The MIE is for academic institutions and research groups, who want to provide improved services to researchers. It combines a premium version of the Mendeley research worktool that gives the most productive integrated combination of reference management, research content discovery, and collaboration; and gives libraries the unique analytics that lets them connect content use with consequent research publications and the readership of these publications. These analytics also help the library identify how to continuously improve their services. This is a cloud-based, real-time platform.

“The success and continued rapid growth of Mendeley to date has already delivered a fantastic new tool for researchers,” said David Main, CEO at Swets, “This new service delivered by libraries gives an premium service to researchers and gives libraries the connection to researchers and their activities that they need in this digital world.”

Speaking of the launch, Victor Henning, managing director of Mendeley, said, “With our cloud based tool, librarians will have a deeper visibility and understanding of their own content use and the impact of their research output. Mendeley Institutional Edition helps provide this and we’re delighted to be working with Swets to open up and increase the visibility of this data. In addition, it will help them build private collaborative groups for their students, researchers, and professors to network and share their knowledge.”
