Our mission is to improve the pace of scientific discovery.
ReadCube was started by a researcher and a computer scientist to address the challenges faced by scientists. What started in a Harvard College dorm room as a tool to help organize and find scientific papers quickly turned into something rather more.
ReadCube’s team of scientists and researchers now spans two continents and supports over 40 million users each year. As ReadCube continues to grow and innovate useful new features, we hope it will help scientists all over the world stay on top of — and spur — scientific progress in their fields.
ReadCube is a Digital Science company.
