Alice Atkinson-Bonasio (@alicebonasio) is PR and Communications Manager for Mendeley, the name of the company and its research collaboration platform and workflow tool that was acquired by Elsevier in April 2013. She holds an MA in Creative and Media Enterprises from the University of Warwick and is completing a PhD in online marketing at Bournemouth University. She is based in Mendeley’s London office.
Apart from some top-secret entertainment involving Lego, Post-it notes and maybe even some dressing up, there will be sneak previews and testing of new features, open forums with the Mendeley and Elsevier teams, and a chance to meet some of the third-party developers of apps like PLASMID.IO and Labfolder, who have used the Mendeley Open API to build some very cool tools for researchers.
We also know that many of you had questions following Mendeley’s acquisition by Elsevier in April.
This is an opportunity to get to know some of the key people at Elsevier who are collaborating with us now and ask them directly. We’re calling it Mendeley Open Day.
Unfortunately, our office is not that big, so we can only invite a limited number of people. However, we do want to include everyone who wants to take part, and luckily we can do that through social media.

So please reach out via our Facebook page or Tweet using the hashtag #Mendeley on Wednesday, June 12.
