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 is backed by Digital Science, a division of Macmillan Publishers Ltd and a sister company of Nature Publishing Group. 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.
