There are many features we have in our overall pipeline. We prioritise based on feedback from conversations with the community, upvoting and ideas that have a big impact on the value the app provides.
🔍 Search and add from 30 million open access papers
Table View
This was one of the highest requested features and the first version is ready. Aside from uploading documents, you can now search through 30 million open access papers from 50k journals by title. And this is just the beginning of what is possible! We now need your help, as we will be expanding the functionality and sources with your feedback. You can try the feature by clicking the Add Documents button in the header of any project!
You are able to further filter results by "has PDF" and order them by year. We are working to add further filters and would love to hear what would be most useful for you. You are able to easy add papers to your project by clicking the plus button (this will use some page quota like uploading documents) or click the more info button to get take to the journal's page. There you get more of a context where the paper is from, usually find the abstract and further information.
We are also working on another feature to help you search across all the documents in your workspace. This will be really great for teams or labs, as you can essentially Super Search across your own curated content pool. If you want to find out more or want early access, feel free to reach out through the chat in app!
📥 Drop documents anywhere in the Table View
The upload is more integrated into the app and appears as a modal, instead of standalone page. If you drag documents directly into a project the modal will now also automatically open!
Links for finding documents are also displayed in the tab called
Research Tool Wall
. Stay tuned for further updates, we have an exciting new feature for finding research papers coming very soon :)
