Browser Extension

Enjoy 1-click importing of references and PDFs across the web - wherever you are discovering new literature - with our browser-based importer.

How it works

Install ReadCube’s Web Importer via Chrome Store, Firefox and Edge.

Search for papers as you normally would on PubMed, Google Scholar, Dimensions and journal websites.  Click on "Add to Library" button to sync articles to your Papers Library. You can even select the collections you'd like to file it in. What's more, you will instantly see if that article is already saved in your library with a direct link to view that copy!

Unlike other bookmarklets and extensions, our web importer offers 1-click downloads of open access articles PLUS integrated proxy support, which enables you to import PDFs part of your library subscription.

Currently, the extension supports Google Chrome, Firefox, and Edge web browsers. We are working hard to bring the importer across other browsers.
