Mendeley Data: comprehensive research data management for institutions

Data management is about more than just compliance: there are clear benefits to be derived from effective solutions. These include:

  • Improved quantity and quality of research output
    The pace of research increases and the credibility of papers improves when the underlying research data are made available for evaluation.
  • Increased research exposure and impact
    When research data is readily available, article exposure and impact both increase, leading to more views, shares, mentions and citations.
  • Increased collaboration
    Shared data is an excellent starting point for further collaboration, as researchers can more easily see how results were obtained and exchange informed views on analysis and interpretation.
  • Improved compliance
    With a secure and user-friendly platform for data publication and sharing, it’s easier to show the benefits of data sharing and ensure that all researchers help with institutional compliance with funder mandates.

To help universities unlock the full potential of data, the Mendeley Data platform is now designed to fully support researchers, librarians and research administrators with integrated workflow tools for the full data lifecycle. Its five modules integrate with more than 35 repositories and a variety of other data management workflow solutions.

Hear from our users

It’s provided me with a place to publish datasets that otherwise wouldn’t be published. All my data comes from CUREs and aren’t attached to major journal articles or large universities that utilize other paid storage sites.

Joseph Felts, Professor at Davidson County Community College

It is an excellent opportunity to share our data with a wide audience of scientists around the world. It is necessary to make our research more transparent, that increase the chance to publish our research reports in the best journals on the world.
