Testimonials. Feel the love

  • "I love that everything is inline! The enhanced PDF allows me to use the more easily-readable and more organized PDF format while retaining (and even improving) the functionality of an online-accessed, full-text article with hyperlinked references and supplements"
    Jordan Reuter
    Microbiology and Cell Science student
    University of Florida
  • "I think that ReadCube is the best product on the market for managing a collection of papers. I have tried managing my collection of articles manually, and I have also tried using other management programs, and I believe that ReadCube is the best tool out there. I love that it will let me use my campus proxy wherever I have access to the internet. I find that it's UI is intuitive and powerful."
    Daniel Burkhardt
    University of Massachusetts Amherst
  • "I think that ReadCube is the best academic application I have ever used. It encompasses everything I need in a reference manager but in a very simple and stylish way, which is why I avidly recommend ReadCube to all my work colleagues."
    Vanessa Tubb
    University of Birmingham
  • "I have been using ReadCube for over past two years successfully. I am really impressed with software - user friendly, very fast and compatibility with pubmed, acrobat and endnote. I've even presented this software in our journal club to all the researchers in the lab and even convinced my prof to start using this software :)."
    Saran Kumar
    National University Of Singapore
  • "Because I have seen both the difficulties of researching topics while struggling to stay organized and the ease of organization after ReadCube - I feel that writing, researching, and just keeping up with current practices has become so much easier when using this awesome program!"
    Isaiah Pacheco
    University of New Mexico
  • "The ability to search for, download and read articles from PubMed or Google Scholar within the software itself, to annotate or make notes on each article, and my absolute favorite feature, the lists!!! It makes the reading and writing part of my job SO much easier!"
    Antoinette Bailey
