Mendeley, a London-based technology startup that provides a research collaboration platform, opened an office in New York.
Mendeley's desktop software automatically extracts relevant information from documents, allowing researchers to organize a personal digital library, as well as manage annotations and references effortlessly. Researchers can then tap into Mendeley's network and make their reading collections more widely accessible. By anonymously aggregating this usage data, Mendeley can identify real-time trends such as the most widely-read research. Launched in London in December 2008, the company's investors include those who previously built Skype, Last.fm, and Warner Music Group.
