Researchers: Focus and publish more with Curiosity
How to focus and increase your publications in top academic journals using Curiosity.
Life in academia is tough: It’s difficult to get published in top journals and conferences. There’s the delay and uncertainty from the peer review process. And in parallel to research you have to juggle teaching and admin tasks.
To help you stay on top of things, we built Curiosity. Curiosity is a productivity app that puts all your information at your fingertips so you can focus on publishing great papers.
You can download Curiosity for free.
Here’s how it works.
Find the right paper instantly
Which paper had that interesting paragraph?
With thousands of papers published every year, it can be difficult to remember where you read something. If you’ve ever spent a frustrating hour clicking through papers looking for a paragraph, you know what we mean. 🤯
Curiosity lets you quickly search through all your papers (and other files). And not just the file names: You can search the full text to get exactly the paragraph you need.
And there’s more:
Search in scanned documents with built-in text recognition (OCR)
Use filters to narrow down your results by date, file type, or source
Collaborate easily across platforms
Where did my co-author put the latest version?
Collaborating with co-authors is one of the joys of academic life. But working with different people means documents get spread across Google Drive, Dropbox, email, and the rest. Especially with long projects it can be hard to remember where things were saved.
Curiosity gives you one place to search across all your cloud apps and email. That means you don’t have to remember where things were stored. What’s more, you can find files without having to sync everything to your computer (coauthors who store big datasets in Dropbox, I’m looking at you 👀).
Instantly access internet archives
Click click click browser. Click click bookmarks. Click. Type. Click. Finally!
The internet is a marvel for research. Resources like arXiv, Pubmed, or Google Scholar truly let us stand on the shoulders of giants. The only problem is the annoyingly slow process to access them — often several times a day.
With Curiosity you can instantly search your favourite sources by hitting
Alt + Space. Zoom! 🏎💨
We currently support the following academic sources
If there’s another one you need, just let us know!
Tag and Search Project-related Documents
I wish I could search in all the papers related to this project
Getting a new project going can mean reading a lot of papers. So how can you easily gather them in one place without ending up with lots of duplicates in individual project folders?
Curiosity makes this easy with Spaces, a handy way to tag a file without having to move it from where it’s stored. And even better: You can search the contents of a Space to quickly get the information you need.
