Groups

Mendeley encourages collaboration with its Groups feature.

This feature allows you to:

  • Create, curate and grow groups of people according to your needs.
  • Control who can join and add materials to your group.
  • Use private groups to collaborate directly on materials and share full papers.

Create a new group in Mendeley Desktop: click the 'Edit' menu and then 'New Group'. You will be prompted to name your group and choose your group type. When your group is created, you can add documents or invite members using the navigation bar.

Create a new group in Mendeley Web: click the 'Groups' tab and then the '+ Create a new group' button. You will be prompted to name your group and choose your group type. When your group is created, you can add documents or invite members using the relevant tabs.
