Transform your literature review

Carrying out a thorough literature review is an essential task for any research project.
It’s also an important part of any research paper.
For students, the literature review demonstrates your understanding of a research topic: what has already been done, what is known, and where the knowledge gaps are.

With Scholarcy Library, you can import all your papers and search results, and quickly screen them with the automatically generated ‘key takeaway’ headline.
