I’m always on the hunt for interesting tools to support my work as an academic researcher (and have been for a long time)
One of the core activities researchers do is read the literature. Over time, one does a lot of reading. But for most, the core pieces of information stay trapped in the article, making it difficult to remember what you read, to retrieve some key info at a later time, and also making it hard to see patterns or emergent ideas.
I created a little script for myself to extract my highlights from PDFs and it works OK.
But this app in development by @msteffens takes it to the next level. i’ve had my eye on it for a while. I think it could be a very useful tool for researchers of all stripes.
