The PhD time of a researcher's life may be one of the most trying times; you work long hours for little pay, but at the end of the tunnel is the satisfaction

We have hired an Android developer and are beginning work now. You can follow the progress at http://feedback.mendeley.com

We're very excited about this!
 
Perhaps this has been discussed already, but is there an official Mendeley app being developed for Android phones/tables?

I find the waiver of "moral rights" requirement to be a real head scratcher. I was not aware that one could waive "moral rights."

It's a very small start and one long over due.

Story
Tagline
Science, Scholarly Communication, and Mendeley
Introduction

I have been engaged in creating the future of science from the start. As a young child, I was fascinated by futuristic stories of science in Omni Magazine and Wired, leading me to get my PhD in the cutting edge field of stem cell biology. My first-hand experience with the inefficiencies and antiquities of "modern" academic research led me to join the team at Mendeley where I work on bringing modern network efficiencies to academic research.

I currently serve as the Head of Academic Outreach for Mendeley, a research management tool for collaboration and discovery.

Most recently, I did assay development for Genalyte, a molecular diagnostics startup. My work involved developing protein, DNA, and small molecule assays on their novel high-throughput assay platform.

I received my PhD from the Tulane University, where I studied under Dr. Darwin Prockop at the Tulane Center for Gene Therapy. My dissertation is entitled "Investigating the Role of Human Multipotent Mesenchymal Stromal Cells in the Repair of Bone", in which I developed a model of multiple myeloma in mice and used it to test small molecule inhibitors of the interaction between multiple myeloma and bone precursor cells, promoting bone regeneration and repair of osteolytic lesions.
Specialties:

My work at Tulane involved self-guided experimental research on the relationship between Human Adult Stem Cells and cancer. My areas of expertise are bone biology, multiple myeloma, adult stem cells, and development of disease models.

Let's just say that back in my day, DJs actually spun records. When I realized only one set of the night was actually performed live, I left and came back at 3 AM (which you'd normally have to pay again to do) and I heard an hour of a decent electro set by a duo called Trade. My recommendation has changed from "it's a total joke, avoid" to "if a group you really want to see is doing a live show there (make sure it's really live), and it's worth it to you to go for 1 hour at 3 AM, then maybe".

Very minimal. No mobile signal, wifi doesn't work, the room is often hot when you return, because to activate the lights and AC, you must insert your key into a port by the door. There's a restaurant serving decent food which might open if you ask nicely, and a bar area which serves beer & house wine only. I stayed here because it was walking distance to the observatory where my meeting was and I didn't want to deal with the Naples cab drivers, but don't recommend it.

A place to have gin and tonics in a unique atmosphere. Didn't try the food, but did try a local favorite, Chivas Regal with sweet green tea. One interesting thing about the place is that it's a seemingly endless warren of rooms across several floors, all different, some cooler than others. There was no trunk to be found. It certainly seemed to be popular with the better dressed young crowd, and filled up on Friday night with house music playing. We didn't see any fighting and felt safe.

Star ratings are kinda pointless for something like this, because we just visited the longhouse and didn't stay overnight, but I have to give one so I did. The visit was definitely worth the drive. Highlights were the cage of headhunter skulls, amazingly good paintings on some of the walls, and the musician playing 200 year old songs on an instrument he made entirely from bamboo, taking 21 days of 8 hours of work to make.

This is a cute little place in downtown Kuching connected to a tour company that will take you kayaking, to some tribal villages, and to (maybe) see orangutans, etc. Clean and relatively quiet, comfortable beds, but nothing fancy. Breakfast was toast with jam, wifi didn't work, but air conditioning did. Has a funky rooftop bar with (only) cold beer. In accordance with local custom, you must remove your shoes at the door, which tends to result in 30-40 pairs of shoes at the top of the stairs (there is no elevator). There are probably nicer places, but there are probably also more expensive places that aren't as nice. I'd stay here again.
