(UPDATE: Sorry for my excitement over Mendeley Suggest that I didn’t realize earlier that it’s still in beta testing phase that is currently available to Mendeley staff and advisors. Don’t worry, I’ve been told that Mendeley Suggest is coming soon to all as 30-day free trial. So stay tuned!)
To all Mendeley users, have you updated to the latest Mendeley Desktop version 1.3? If you haven’t, I recommend you to do it immediately to get the latest feature of Mendeley Suggest and many more. If you have noticed on the Mendeley Web, on your right side of the screen, there are recommended articles generated based on your contents of your library. I found that very useful to discover new papers related to my research topics that I might have missed otherwise. Similarly, Mendeley Desktop 1.3 comes with a new feature called Mendeley Suggest that recommends articles that may be of your interest.
If you like the papers suggested, just click Accept and it will be imported to your library. If the papers are not of your interest, just click Remove to dismiss them and another set of papers will be generated for recommendation. I found many new interesting papers from Mendeley Suggest and I advise you to take a look at this new feature.
Other than Mendeley Suggest, another notable update on this version 1.3 is opening PDF files directly using Mendeley Desktop.
Just right-click on your PDF file and click Open With – Mendeley Desktop. I rarely use this feature but I thought some may like it.
So how do you like the latest version of Mendeley Desktop 1.3?
