"We know that researchers want to access research articles in a convenient way without having to worry about copyright compliance issues or visiting multiple platforms. Hence, in collaboration with publishers, we are happy to agree on how to extend our existing arrangements around private sharing of full-text articles (in line with the STM Private Sharing Principles, of which we are a founding signatory) to “public” sharing use cases such as posting to an author’s profile or sharing in a public group. We will build on recent technology advances to make sure that compliance issues are dealt with between publishers and the Mendeley platform, rather than putting the burden on researchers to deal with fragmented and complex copyright rules."
