Mendeley is not only a reference management tool. In addition, registered Mendeley users have access to an academic networking platform with a global reach, and can become part of the researcher community.
Based on the articles in your library and your research topics, you can opt to receive interesting articles in weekly email updates, through the Mendeley app or when you sign into your account. When signed into your account, you'll be able to see notifications about new publications, profile updates from researchers, and comments from group discussions.
Take some time to establish your online researcher profile, as this presence can:
connect you with others in your discipline
open up opportunities for collaboration or joint projects
help build your confidence in communicating your work with your peers
