Popular Questions

Do I get paid to promote Mendeley?

No, this is not a paid position. However, we offer tons of fantastic Mendeley Advisor perks including: a premium plan, merchandise, and support in your outreach efforts, among many other benefits.

Do I have to present results once I become an Advisor?

The Advisor Community has grown from passionate and organic Mendeley enthusiasts and it wouldn’t make sense to demand results from our Advisors. However, we would love to receive photos and feedback from your activities.

Does it cost to be a Mendeley Advisor?

No! We value the Mendeley Advisors and the worth you bring to us here at Mendeley. We’d have to weigh you all in gold, and that would bankrupt us.

So how do I get great Mendeley merchandise?

Just ask us! If you register a presentation, we will send enough for you and your attendees:

I've submitted an Advisor or Events application but haven't received a reply, was it rejected?

We take the time to personally look at all applications and expect to reply within 1 week of submission, and we always answer in case of rejection. However, if it is urgent, or you are still waiting, just email us at

Will you pay for food/travel/room fees?

We can help out with some expenses on a case-by-case basis. Please email us at to discuss these expenses before you make arrangements.
