Mendeley's network includes the sharing of documents in a crowd sourced online catalog consisting of millions of papers.
Find it on Mendeley Web under the Papers tab. You can search topics by keyword, and there's an advanced search to limit your search by field, document type, date range, or discipline.
References can be downloaded to your Mendeley library. You can refine your search results to Open Access documents. You can also click to see related results.
If and when you get something published, you can add your own papers to the database. This could help get your work noticed in the academic community. Select what you want added from your Mendeley library on Mendeley Desktop and then drag into the My Publications folder. Mendeley provides statistics of the community's interest in your work.
You can build a network of colleagues or collaborators or scholars in your field on Mendeley. You can use the search box on Mendeley Web, peruse Mendeley profiles, and ask individuals if you can add them to your contacts.
You can also invite non-users to join Mendeley.
