About the Mendeley Data team

Sharing research data has the potential to make research more reproducible and efficient.

Scientific research is an incredibly complex process. To increase efficiency and ensure success, it’s crucial that researchers are able to handle data in a way that will allow sharing and reuse. Creating a strong data ecosystem that supports these data needs requires collaboration across the community that generates, stores, retrieves and uses data: researchers, librarians, institutions, government offices, funders and publishers. The Mendeley Data team aims to develop tools, processes and standards to enable effective, rigorous and open research data management practices.

Our team of developers, publishers and thought leaders works closely with academic, government and industry partners to develop a range of industry standards that enable institutions and their researchers to unlock the full potential of research data.
