NEWSFLASH: Elsevier buys Mendeley

 It’s Official: Elsevier is Acquiring Mendeley

Citing announcements from both Elsevier and Mendeley, InfoDOCKET reports the Elsevier acquisition of Mendeley.

InfoDOCKET goes on to quote the Mendeley blog post on the acquisition:

“The most important things first: very little will change for you as a Mendeley user. In fact, Mendeley is only going to get better for you. For starters, we are doubling everyone’s storage space at no cost. Your free Mendeley account now comes with 2GB, Mendeley Plus and MIE accounts get upgraded to 5GB, and Mendeley Pro accounts to 10GB. There will always be a free version of Mendeley, and our functionality will continue to improve, now even faster than before…”

As well as the Elsevier blog:

“For Elsevier, we can build upon strong foundations in search and discovery by adding capabilities in document and citation management and sharing. By offering integration between Mendeley, Scopus and ScienceDirect, we can make this combined platform the central workflow and collaboration site for authors. In addition, we will be able to provide greater access to a growing repository of user-generated content while building tools that will enable researchers to search this growing body of research more precisely…”

 

We also note that the deal is already being commented on by the press in articles like:
