Training was attended by 20 people and led in cooperation by Eliška Číková and Michal Procházka.
The main target of the training was to notify young people in our Institute with the benefits of using Mendeley software and to teach them basics. The training was divided in two sections. The first part of the training was aimed to demonstrate the possibilities of software and the second section was focused on practical skills. Participants had the opportunity to register in Mendeley with the help of more experienced colleagues and download the application to try to work with software.
