Federated search across 20+ search engines. From PubMed and Scopus to arXiv and Google Scholar.

Take advantage of the full screen reader.

Papers helps you focus on the task at hand. Highlight, underline, strike through and add sticky notes. Switch between different documents with tabs. Plus you can also view supplemental files and an offline copy of the article you're reading directly in the application.


Throw out those folders of uncategorized documents and let Papers organize your documents.

Papers automatically renames and organizes documents according to your preferences. When you import references that you have access to, Papers automatically downloads the full text article. 85+ document types are supported.
