Organization as Communication at Mendeley

I’ve been a long-time LaTeX afficionado, twisting and turning every time I have to write a paper in Microsoft Word or Open Office Writer. While I admit that the learning curve for LaTeX is a bit steep, the payoff is huge. Not only do you get professional documents from the get-go, collaboration among multiple authors is a breeze with tools such as Dropbox or Git.

LaTeX uses BibTeX for referencing, which is a great file format by itself. Unfortunately, most reference managers atop mess with the structure of the file. Sharing references in BibTeX format among authors is thus a pain.

Enter Mendeley. Although Mendeley messes with the structure of BibTex files, too, it does a great job sharing references. See for yourself, follow, or join our new group on Organization as Communication at Mendeley.
