Welcome to Papers

You've just taken the first step towards a simpler, more organized research life.


In addition to our full-featured web app, download Papers on your desktop (Mac/Windows) and mobile devices (iOS/Android) to access your library offline and on-the-go.



Add your existing PDFs by dragging the files into your Papers library window or use the "Add" button at the top of the screen. Papers will automatically match article metadata and link available supplements.

Want to import from an existing reference manager? Import easily from Papers 3, Endnote, Zotero, and Mendeley


Discover new articles within the app or add our browser extensions and enjoy 1-click imports on all your favorite discovery tools (like PubMed, Google Scholar, Dimensions), preprint databases and journal websites.


Double click any article in your library to view PDFs in our enhanced viewer - enjoy annotation tools, clickable inline citations, linked supplements, article metrics and much more.


Click the "+" icon next to the Shared Libraries section on the left side of your library and create up to 5 collaborative spaces where you can invite up to 25 colleagues. Drag in PDFs or references from your personal library or desktop.
