ReadCube Papers is an innovative tool that provides users the option to create their own research library where they can store and edit articles.
In order to start using the program's features, users have to complete a straightforward installation process that lasts up to one minute. Then they have to create an account in order to log into the application and start using its functions.
The interface looks fresh, the page sections are well-delimited and the menu navigation is fast and intuitive.

ReadCube Papers comes with numerous useful features, such as text library search, advanced sorting and filtering, or unlimited cloud storage for the user's personal library.

Moreover, it supports more than 9000 citation styles along with the possibility to customize them. Also, users can insert references from personal libraries or they can use the built-in search engine.

The only cons are represented by the reference cites format, that can't be set, and the PDF annotation, that could've been more intuitive.

In conclusion, ReadCube Papers is a modern and useful solution that provides researchers with powerful tools for organizing and editing their work.
