RESEARCHER: MODERNISING PAPER DISCOVERY
Browse thousands of academic papers and discover what matters to you. Keep track of the latest literature directly from your phone. With 10 different research areas, Researcher is your inclusive and intuitive app to find what’s relevant in seconds.
AN APP DESIGNED BY ACADEMICS, FOR ACADEMICS
We are on a mission to help you become the best scientist you can be. The RESEARCHER team is striving to make it easy and efficient for you to find and read new papers that are vital to your research and teaching.
RESEARCHER is always up to date. We add 39,000 papers each week as soon as they are available from publishers.
RESEARCHER simplifies the discovery process. We understand the pain points related to keeping on top of an overwhelming amount of published work. That’s why we created filters, notifications and bookmark libraries.
RESEARCHER is constantly growing and evolving. Over 800,000 researchers are part of a burgeoning community representing over 180 countries with more joining each day. Every week we release new content and improvements to our app.
RESEARCHER is free. Create an account that syncs with the web and start browsing papers whenever and wherever you are.
