Covering your common literature needs
We are aware that every researcher has a different focus. However, all researchers rely on a common information framework:
- They keep up-to-date with the essential literature in the field.
- They study and develop expertise in their distinct area.
- They look for inspiration and ideas to solve problems.
What sets them apart is mainly their personal interests, such as their current project or specific competition.
We select articles and structure our reviews carefully, so all your common literature needs are covered:
- We keep you up-to-date with the core articles in the field (e.g. fundamental studies, key findings, comprehensive reports, perspectives, reviews).
- We capture and categorize the latest articles in your area (e.g. cathode research, BMS algorithms, grid storage applications).
- We expose you to a variety of relevant articles to help you think outside the box (e.g. seeing inspirational solutions to a similar problem) and reveal different perspectives (e.g. understanding engineering aspects of a specific technology).
Our reviews are as comprehensive as possible, but understandably, they can’t cover someone’s specific interests (e.g. follow a particular issue, a method, or a research lab). Fortunately, there are online tools that can complement our service, such as keyword notifications and content alerts.
Saving your time
We save you a lot of time – from hours to days, each month. To be specific, there are two types of time savings you can benefit from:
- Direct time savings come from not having to browse or search for important literature, i.e. having everything relevant summarized and presented to you. Browsing, searching, and sorting through various sources can add up to several hours a week, if you don’t want to miss anything important.
- Indirect time savings come from being fully informed and maximizing your work efficiency. For example, many researchers don’t dedicate sufficient time to regularly keep up with literature. As a result, they often end up spending hours (even days) trying to understand or solve problems that have already been explained, solved, and published.
Does finding more references mean more reading? No, it just means you are better informed and more aware of everything important that is going on. When it comes to solving a problem, however big or small, you remember there is already a solution and know where to find it.
