Mendeley subscription terminated

Our subscription to Mendeley is terminated by 31 December 2019 

As previously announced, Aalborg University Library has terminated its licence to Mendeley Institutional Edition from 31 December 2019. The termination is due to economic cutbacks and a consequent need to save expenses and prioritise services and staff resources. In this context, we prioritise New Refworks as our choice of reference tool. If you have any questions about this, you are welcome to contact area manager Thomas Vibjerg Hansen at tvh@aub.aau.dk.

How will it affect you as a Mendeley IE user?

You still have access to Mendeley. Your existing account remains, but is transferred to the free version of Mendeley. This means less space and fewer groups with less members. Read more about Mendeley Free.
If your Mendeley account exceeds the terms of Mendeley Free, your content will freeze and some features may no longer be available. To be able to use your account again, you need to make space until you are within the terms, or choose to buy more space yourself - https://mendeley.com/settings/upgrad
The University library offers access to New RefWorks. If you wish, you have the option of moving your Mendeley content to New RefWorks. Read more about New Refworks

If you want to switch to New Refworks

Before you switch from Mendeley to New RefWorks, it is important that you complete all documents that you are currently working on. Alternatively, you will have to reinsert all references in Word with New RefWorks once you have made the switch.

We have made a video that briefly shows you how to transfer your references from Mendeley to New RefWorks. Once you have transferred your references to New RefWorks, we recommend that you check you references to see that that have been been transferred correctly.

If you need help transferring your references or have any questions about the above, please contact our New RefWorks support or Mendeley support at: refworks@aub.aau.dk or mendeley@aub.aau.dk
