You can share citations with other Mendeley users using Groups. There are three kinds of groups:
You can create your own group, or search for existing groups that cover your areas of interest.
|Mendeley tracks the number of Mendeley users that have any given article in their library. You can look at a summary of basic demographic information about readers for an article in Mendeley Web.|
|External Altmetric tools have also incorporated Mendeley reader numbers into their measurements.|
Mendeley users all contribute to Mendeley's crowd-sourced research catalogue. That is, all of the citations you collect are entered into a master database that can be searched by other Mendeley users using the "Literature search" function in Mendeley desktop, or the "Papers" tab in Mendeley web. You can save any items that come up in the search directly to your Mendeley library.
