Ask questions - the Authors and Community respondWe asked ourselves, why do we not combine the reliability of PDFs with the interactivity of the world wide web to advance science? So we decided to revolutionize publications by making them interactive & social. We call it "collaborative annotation". Ask questions, share your knowledge and let's build an archive of scientific discussions. And the best: We'll invite the authors to join you too.
Manage & Share your Documents in GroupsResembling the organic structure of the global research community, we designed Groups Pages that allow you to collect your discussions in one place. If you are running a Journal Club or Seminar, choose the public option and your discussions will be shared with the rest of the world. Choose the private option, e.g. for a class or research group, and only groups members will have access to your files and discussions.
Import from arXiv and PubmedDuring the past decade more and more Open Access journals around the world have sprung up. This changes the way in which modern research is being conducted and will inevitable open up science. With Open Rev., we leverage Open Access and demonstrate its full power. Just use our search and import any paper from arXiv and PubMed.
When you upload copyrighted material into public groups, your peers will have always access to the comments, no matter if they have access to the paper or not.
