Calculating Mendeley reader indicators for individual files

To calculate the world normalised indicators for the Mendeley readers, select Calculate MNLCS, gMNCS and NPC for a set of Mendeley API results files (one or more files, each processed separately) from the Reports menu. From the dialog box that appears next, select the Mendeley readers folder containing the WoS/Scopus files with downloaded Mendeley readership information and click OK.  When asked which column contains the number of readers, the answer is the column labelled Readers, which is usually 74. Check this, click OK and then click No to avoid creating a second report.

The top part of the results, for individual files, is repeated below.

The bottom part of the Mendeley API report gives the same information as above, except in a tabular format.
