I just started playing around with a an online reference manager and social network for researchers called Mendeley. I’ve found it to be a great tool for organizing my PDFs and online links to academic papers. Mendeley allows you to organize, tag, backup, sync, and annotate your PDFs. The desktop software for Mendeley is easy to use and has a great interface. The really unique aspect to this reference organizing tool is that you can create public groups to collaborate with others interested in the topic you are researching.
I was surprised to find that there wasn’t a value investing group on Mendeley. I solved that little issue real by quickly setting up a group simply called Value Investing. I welcome fellow value investors to join this group and share their collections of papers.
I’m still looking for a collection of Benjamin Graham papers I have somewhere on my hard drive that I will add to the group as soon as I find them. So far I have some classic Piotroski and Altman papers listed in the group. Please add your favorite value investing references to the list. I could see this group becoming a great resource for value investing students and researchers given the excellent collaboration features that Mendeley groups provide.
