Until now, researchers have had no uniform way of taking and organizing personal notes, collaborating with others, or engaging in public discussions on documents across the web. Existing solutions are limited in scope, proprietary and poor quality.

Publishers struggle to differentiate themselves when their content ends up as PDFs uploaded to large scholarly networks, where the true engagement happens.

We envision a world in which a standards based annotation capability functions everywhere on the web without restriction.

Your content can stay on your site, and can be enhanced by layers of annotation curated by authors, community members and others.

Author’s notes, invited discussions, published reviews, enhanced footnotes and better tools for researchers can give your journal the edge that increases submissions and keeps your readers at your site.

Your content shouldn’t have to be uploaded somewhere else in order to come alive.
