  • (2021-05-07) Robert Cooper: This largely works for importing into my Papers library, but with 2 catches. 1) The importer appears to allow you to select a collection/list to import the paper into, but when you go to your library, the new paper is not actually associated with the selected collection/list. (Mac desktop app, Chrome browser) 2) The alphabetic order for selecting a collection puts all capital letters before all lowercase letters. So Zoo comes before aardvark.
  • (2021-03-09) Chentao YANG: Please keep going! I have been using Mendeley for years! But Mendeley is slowly dying "thanks to" Elsevier. Recently, I discovered ReadCube, and find it fantastic. I really hope that ReadCube can be better and better! Please Keep Going!
  • (2019-06-17) K O'Meehan: This might be a helpful extension for people in other circumstances, but if you're here because (like me), you're trying to get university access to an article/book from Wiley or some other publisher and they forced you down this rabbit hole, stop now and save yourself the trouble. This is not a service, it's a wall, and it's inhibiting research by bogging people down and, in my case, not even working after I went through all the trouble.
  • (2019-04-30) CHEN Jie: 1. PDF opened in chrome sometimes can't be imported. 2. Can't directly add paper from the extension icon any more.
  • (2019-02-22) Avery Menear: I am currently an undergraduate student and every once in awhile I need to write research papers for some of my classes. The ReadCube Chrome extension has been incredibly helpful in keeping all of the references that I need in one easily accessible place. Often I would bookmark articles I had found and have to search back through my bookmarks to find them. With ReadCube I don't need to keep 15 or 16 tabs open in order to find what I need, any PDFs are easily saved to my ReadCube library where I can keep them in folders by topic or interest. The Chrome extension comes up whenever I pull up a PDF and allows me to save it directly to my library. Another feature that I appreciate about ReadCube is that it allows me to log in with a proxy whenever I am off campus in order to access full PDFs. This has been extremely helpful as I am most often off campus when I am trying to find references for my research papers. I would recommend this to anyone having to do research, especially undergraduate students like myself.

  • (2018-05-29) Matt M: This is excellent functionality but one key missing feature is the ability to recognize and tell you if an article is already in your library.** It is possible to repeatedly add multiple duplicates to your library without any indication. **Update: The extension now has a feature wherein the import window shows "In Library" when you already have the item in your library!! Unfortunately, this only seems to work sometimes.
  • (2017-11-08) Ruirui Liu: I want to give you a feedback. When I use this extension, I cannot upload file on Canvas.
  • (2017-04-08) Carlos García Domínguez: Excelente aplicación, fácil, intuitiva. La extensión una maravilla.
  • (2017-02-14) Shaoliang Nie: please keep updating the extension
  • (2017-01-21) Cesar Nahoum: Terrific! Extremely useful. Congrats. César Nahoum
  • (2016-07-08) Yarmo Mackenbach: CPU hog, slows down the browser on every page by reacting to every click on a button (easily verifiable by opening DevTools). Please fix this, or open source it so that developers can help, because this is unacceptable for an extension.
  • (2016-03-10) Mahantesh B: Must have chrome extension for researchers!
