Description from store Scholarcy™ is the solution to that pile of papers on your virtual desk - research made easy! This Extension gives you the key points of any research paper, report, or book chapter. It creates a referenced, paraphrased summary, and generates a background reading list for those new to a field. Our unique Robo-Highlighter™ automatically highlights important contributions made by the paper. No more highlighting with a marker pen - our advanced AI does it for you. Scholarcy also extracts figures, tables, and bibliographies, and locates open-access PDFs for each reference from Google Scholar, arXiv and elsewhere. Scholarcy is fully customisable - if you only want to download each referenced paper, simply disable the other features. To provide this service, our Chrome Extension needs to read and process the contents of the current web page, if it is open and publicly accessible. It cannot read content that is behind a login/paywall. For more information on how we use this data, please read our FAQ: https://www.scholarcy.com/faq/ and Privacy Policy: https://www.scholarcy.com/privacy-policy/

  • (2018-08-27) Matt Kohl: A tremendous asset! Scholarcy provides clear, readable summaries & automatically highlights useful phrases. It also links to background reading. The extension is a breeze to use as well. Can't recommend enough!!
  • (2018-06-14) Gerard Lynch: Excellent browser extension to help with the oft tedious academic literature review process . This is a great boon for busy academics, students and anybody who is dealing with information overload. Especially useful are the features for extracting data from embedded tables, perfect for reproducibility studies!
