Changes to the Mendeley Developer APIs

We recently communicated with our users about a few changes we’re making to Mendeley to allow us to focus even more on what they’ve told us they value most - our reference management, research data management and citation tools. These changes include the retiring of:

  • Mendeley Feed and Public Groups
  • Mendeley Profiles
  • Mendeley Funding

As a current or potential API partner, we wanted to inform you that our developer APIs will be changing in early 2021 in line with these product changes.

Changes will include at least the following:

  • Removal of the Profile Search endpoint
  • Removal of the Follower endpoint
  • Changes to the Groups model removing attributes relating to public and invite-only groups
  • Changes to the Profiles model removing attributes relating to public profiles such as research interests, education, employment and biography
