Mendeley Advisor Program
Help us spread the word across the globe
My greatest use of Mendeley is in networking, and collaborating with others within open and closed groups. My research brings me and my colleagues to remote locations, but with groups we can not only share and share and retrieve articles of interest while in the field, but also feel a part of a greater, friendly community of researchers.
Mendeley makes it much easier to share information with our overseas colleagues - we can discuss research papers over time zones and if internet connections are unreliable.
Mendeley is really living up to its motto of changing the way we do research, by using researchers' libraries to crowd-source research data. Mendeley provides a new (and I think better) way to discover and evaluate sources. And Mendeley really gets the socially-connected, multi-device milieu of the 21st Century researcher.
Resources and teaching
Ready-to-use presentations, templates, posters, videos and a lot of useful stuff including tips and tricks about teaching
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: http://community.mendeley.com/events
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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 email@example.com to discuss these expenses before you make arrangements.
