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 summary, and generates a background reading list for those new to a field. Need to see how a paper builds on previous research? Our new 'Comparative Analysis' engine highlights this for you. Scholarcy can save up to 70% of the time needed to get the key information from a paper to help you with your research and literature review. Our unique Robo-Highlighter™ automatically highlights important contributions made by the paper. Scholarcy locates open-access PDFs for each reference from Google Scholar, arXiv and elsewhere, and can also be configured to extract figures and tables. And finally you can save this all to your Scholarcy Library, or export to your favourite tools for networked thought. To provide this service, our 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/
