Mendeley – a tool for managing and sharing research papers

March 20, 2009

A few days ago I have downloaded and started to use Mendeley system. It is “free academic software for managing and sharing research papers”.
You can very easy create your own library on the Mendeley website and  save online your pdf and Word (they are transformed to pdf during uploading) files.
You can acces them anywhere by using your name and password.

You can create folders in your library and easy reorganize – move files from one folder to other by drag-and-drop way.

You can create shared folders as well and invite your colleagues.

For more information read an interview with Victor Henning from Mendeley.

There isa large community of researchers and you can search the list of them by entering topic, e.g. “Knowledge management”. Today I have found 291 member who have research interest in knowledge management
Then you can contact them sending a message.

Engaging Students as Researcher through Internet use

January 20, 2009

I see that my blog visitors are interested in Web research tools for education and students.

Therefore I should like to recommend students and lecturers an interesting article Engaging Students as Researchers through Internet use.

A short excerpt

Information Gathering: students appreciated a wide range of options and felt that the Internet allowed them more choices. They also expressed awareness of the pitfalls of searching the Web and cautioned against gathering too much information without focusing their topic or evaluating their results as they progressed in their research.

    Discovery: students appreciated the exposure to new perspectives and areas of research–essentially the increased opportunity for serendipitous events.
    Connectivity: students liked the brainstorming aspect of Web searches and how they would return to their searching strategy as new information appeared. Students also made connections in terms of sequencing tasks and developed a sense of the connections emerging between their sources.
    Evaluation: students want to read a lot of articles to find the “best ones.” They expressed awareness of practicing more caution in their choices and understood the need to look at sites for the publisher’s bias.
