Mendeley was purchased by the Elsevier publishing company in 2013. The sale led to debate on scientific networks and in the media interested in Open Access, and upset members of the scientific community who felt that the program's acquisition by publishing giant Elsevier, known for implementing restrictive publishing practices, the high prices of their journals, and publicly supporting the SOPA bill, was antithetical to the open sharing model of Mendeley. David Dobbs, in The New Yorker, suggested Elsevier's reasons for buying Mendeley could have been to acquire its user data and/or to "destroy or coopt an open-science icon that threatens its business model."

Save references to Mendeley from Chrome easily!
Mendeley is a free, easy-to-use tool to help you collect, organise, cite and share your research sources.
With the Mendeley Web Importer extension, you are able to easily save references and PDF files into your personal library with a single click. You’ll need to have a Mendeley account already set up in order to use the Mendeley Web Importer. Creating a Mendeley account takes just a couple of minutes.
To use the new Mendeley Web Importer for Chrome, you just need to be viewing an article or a list of references in the browser. This can mean that you’re looking at an actual PDF file, an article entry in an online catalog, or even a list of search results. The Mendeley Web Importer extension will scan the page for metadata, and provide you with a list of the results it finds.
Click on the red Mendeley button next to the address bar in Chrome to import the content you are currently viewing. Depending on the number of results the Importer finds, you’ll be provided with a list of different items, or specific details of a single item. You can then review the details, and even make manual corrections within the Importer itself, before choosing to add the references to your personal Mendeley library.
