Group Collaboration

Mendeley Groups are ideal for collaboration. There are three types of groups in Mendeley:

  • Private – can share references and full-text files. Only group members can see the group. Private groups are ideal for class groups. Note: only logins created using email addresses can create private groups.
  • Invite only – can share references only. The public can only follow the group. This is good for sharing references or reading lists with colleagues or students.
  • Open – can share references only. The public can become a member or follow the group. This option is useful for crowd sourcing reading lists.
