New Features within ReadCube Papers – September 2019

As a ReadCube Papers subscriber, you automatically get prompted when new feature updates are available within our suite of reference management apps. Take a look below to see what’s been added in September.

Smart Lists

Keeping your scholarly papers and references organized just got a whole lot easier! Start with a simple search rule (like a string of keywords) or view our guide to more complex syntax searches. Once set, all papers that match your search will auto-organize into your newly created smart list and continue to update as you add new papers to your library.  Smart lists are available for both personal and shared libraries.

Author Attribution

Keep on-top of what your collaborators are saying on papers within shared libraries. See who said what and don’t forget that each comment is hyperlinked to make it easy for you to jump to the section of the paper where the annotation can be found.
