Rhododendron Literature Database

With over 2.5 million scientific papers published each year, it can be difficult and time-consuming to identify articles relevant to Rhododendron research. To address this, the R-RN has created an online Rhododendron literature database available to network particiapants.. With 2500+ references, the database has excellent coverage for years 1980-2018. New publications will be added to the database quarterly. American Rhododendron Society volunteers are assisting to add references published prior to 1980, some publications dating as far back as 1571.

We are using the freeware Mendeley for the Rhododendron literature database. R-RN members can join a Mendeley private group to search articles, promote your work, and collaborate with other researchers. Group members can add PDFs as desired, but storage for the entire group is limited to 2 gigabytes, unless all members purchase storage upgrades. This group has a limit of 20 invitations. Multiple groups can be formed as needed.

To request an invitation to join the private Mendeley group use the form provided below. The invitation will contain instructions how to establish a Mendeley login account. Please note the desktop computer version of Mendeley is required to search documents within the private group.

For instructions on how to use Mendeley and the Rhododendron Literature Database, please see the following:
    ► written instructions
