Interlinked Databases

Multiple linked databases allow you to connect your research with source articles, upcoming conferences and publications that you are considering submitting to.

Easily and quickly see related notes and ideas that can help you expand your research article.


Store Relevant Information

Published articles contain a large amount of metadata. This is often useful if you need to cite the article later in your research or see what other articles the author has published.

Once articles have been read, you can easily store a summary and key conclusions to save you having to re-read the article from scratch.


Capture and Store Figures

Pictures tell a 1,000 words is a phrase that is commonly used.

Using the Reference Figures and Tables database you can quickly store interesting figures or large tables of values for fast retrieval later on.

You will always know where a figure has originated from.

Speed Up Your Workflows with Predesigned Templates

When capturing information from published research it can be hard to know what to extract from it.

The New Article template allows you to capture the things that matter. Including the aims, methods and key results from the article. 

Once you have these, you can then create a short summary of the paper for future reference, which saves you from having to read it from scratch.
