Open Access Science Publisher Frontiers Adopts ReadCube Web Reader for Interactive PDF Reading
Date:1/15/2013

Lausanne, Switzerland (PRWEB) January 15, 2013

Frontiers, open-access publisher of interdisciplinary science journals, today announced the new integration of the ReadCube Web Reader for all of its peer-reviewed online journals. ReadCube is the flagship product of Labtiva, a Boston based company, supported by Digital Science. The integration enhances the reading experience for Frontiers journal articles, by combining the print-quality reading experience of PDFs with the enhanced interactivity and wealth of related content currently available only when reading articles online.

The elements of ReadCube’s enhanced PDF include annotation tools, hyperlinked in-line citations, and clickable author names that initiate searches to quickly find related articles. In an effort to best serve the Frontiers community, Labtiva customized the web reader so that hyperlinked author names also link to the author’s profile page in the Frontiers Research Network. A sample article can be found at:

“Our goal is to catapult scholarly publishing into the digital era,” says Kamila Markram, CEO of Frontiers and a researcher at EPFL. “The ReadCube Web Reader will help us to achieve our mission by providing quick and simple features for our growing community of researchers to organize, collaboratively annotate and share scientific papers online."

The ReadCube Web Reader can save articles, enhancements, and annotations to the free ReadCube desktop reference manager for PCs and Macs. ReadCube Desktop automatically imports, builds and curates the user’s personal library of academic literature, organizing it by tags and topics. It can also rapidly acquire articles without the hassles of repeatedly entering login information or visiting multiple web pages. It discovers new published literature through intuitive search tools and an optional recommendation system based on reading habits.

“In the digital age, scientists should not have to waste time chasing information through complicated and confusing systems,” says Robert McGrath, Labtiva’s co-founder and CEO. “ReadCube’s purpose is to simplify many common time-consuming steps and thus free up time and energy that can be better spent engaging with literature and generating new data.”

For users of the ReadCube desktop application, PDF enhancement can be applied to millions of articles from all of the major publishers.

Since its launch in late 2011, ReadCube has attracted scientists from over 5,000 institutions and forged alliances with Nature Publishing Group, Palgrave, and now Frontiers.
