Scholarcy helps students “get to grips” with the research in their chosen field faster and with more confidence. The London-based company has developed a virtual research assistant that converts research documents in any format into interactive summary flashcards and:
Identifies and defines key concepts: Scholarcy extracts the most relevant keywords from a document, and links these to their definitions in Wikipedia to provide more background for those students who are new to a subject or topic.
Highlights important points: Scholarcy’s unique Robo-Highlighter™ automatically highlights important phrases and contributions made by the paper. No more printing off papers and manually going over them with a marker pen – Scholarcy’s advanced AI has learnt how academic papers are written and can identify when an important point is being made.
Creates a referenced summary: Scholarcy summarises the whole paper with references, rewriting statements in the third person, making it easier to cite the information correctly in your report, essay or thesis.
Finds the references: No more trawling the web trying to find the papers in the references – Scholarcy does that for you, locating open-access PDFs from Google Scholar, arXiv and elsewhere. You can also download the entire bibliography in BibTex or .RIS format, so you can import each entry into your favourite reference management tool.
Extracts figures and tables: Need to check the numbers? Scholarcy finds the tables in the paper and lets you download them in Excel format, so you can run your own calculations on the results.
