The research catalog is a massive and rapidly growing crowd-sourced database of research articles and their document details. With millions upon millions of articles being added to Mendeley's Research Catalog on a monthly basis, you are bound to find what you are looking for (and more!).
It is cross-disciplinary, continuously updated and layered with social and statistical data that make it extremely useful.
Access the Mendeley Research Catalog via http://www.mendeley.com/research-papers/
Here's a quick overview of our research catalog.
You will notice that you are presented with some of the most read papers in the catalog (on the left-hand side). You can see that there is a small indicator of the number of Mendeley users that are also reading this document (or at least have it in their library). More so, you can restrict your searches to a given discipline by going through one of the options on the upper right sidebar section.
Statistical goodness is presented in the bottom right sidebar where you can see interesting stats such as the most popular publication outlet.
