The journal and e-book content of the Royal Society of Chemistry has been indexed in ReadCube Discover. More than 350,000 articles were assembled for indexing, covering backfile content stretching back to 1841. This case study outlines the impact of ReadCube on the research workflow and how it enabled researchers to discover new science – and annotate it. In doing this, the ReadCube.

“My colleagues and I like the way that ReadCube presents the whole article and the supplementary data together (…) The supplementary data is not hidden through a link but exposed and made easily accessible.”
