This is where we preview some free tools for you to try out. Before you start, please make sure your browser bookmarks bar is visible:
Chrome: View → Always Show Bookmarks Bar ✔️
Firefox: View → Toolbars → Bookmarks Toolbar ✔️
Safari: View → Show Favourites Bar
Finally, an alternative to our popular Chrome Extension for users of other browsers! Drag the Flashcard bookmarklet to your browser bookmarks bar.
When you have an open-access article open in your browser, click the Flashcard button to distil the article into its key sections and summary in a new tab.
If you are technically minded, you can customise the bookmarklet with the following parameters:
images=true full_text=true image_engine=v2
Article highlights and summaries
Drag the Article Highlights and Summary bookmarklets to your browser bookmarks bar.
As with the Flashcard bookmarklet, when you have an open-access article open in your browser, click the Article Highlights button and the key points will be displayed in a new tab.
Or click the Summary button to get a longer, bullet point summary.
Just need to see the main findings from the article? Drag this bookmarklet to your browser bookmarks bar, then click on it when you have an article open in your browser, and the main findings will be displayed in a new tab.
Automatic reference extraction and parsing
To download the references from any public PDF URL, drag any of these bookmarklets to your browser bookmarks bar.
With a public article PDF open in your browser, click either bookmarklet buttons to extract and download the references.
Application programming interfaces (APIs)
As an alternative to the bookmarklets and Chrome Extension, you can extract and download the references from your research papers using our references API, and extract highlights and summaries with our knowledge extraction API. These APIs are open for testing and light use – please Contact us if you require a commercial license or need bulk processing.
