So many great papers,
so little time.
Keeping up with the latest research is tough. Millions of new research papers are published each year. Then there’s reports, white papers and company documents. Your usual research tools can find the most recent or influential ones, but you still have hundreds of papers on your desktop – and no time to read them. Skimming the abstract doesn’t give you enough insight into how important a paper could be to your work.
How Scholarcy can help you
Reads and summarises research papers for you
Scholarcy reads your research papers, reports and book chapters in seconds and breaks them down into bite-sized sections – so you can quickly assess how important any document is to your work.
Gives you key facts, figures and references instantly.
Scholarcy creates a summary flashcard of any paper, report or document in Word or PDF format. It extracts figures, tables and images, and links to open access versions of cited sources.
Scholarcy helps you to speed-read the paper, follow the arguments and take away the main points in minutes. And if you’re looking for referenced papers – they’re only a click away.
Builds you a personal summarised research library
Scholarcy’s Chrome Extension works with open-access repositories such as arXiv, biorXiv, and OSF Preprints. It also integrates with the Scholarcy Library – a pay-monthly subscription service that builds a searchable collection of your summary cards, accessible from any device.
Scholarcy in a Nutshell
Scholarcy provides clear, readable summaries & automatically highlights useful phrases. It also links to background reading. The extension is a breeze to use as well. Can’t recommend enough!!
This is a great boon for busy academics, students and anybody who is dealing with information overload. Especially useful are the features for extracting data from embedded tables, perfect for reproducibility studies!
While there has been reference citation code and software in the past to extract references from PDF, none have been so easy to use as Scholarcy.
