Paperpile - a modern reference manager
paperpile.com
Outline
• Examples of academic collaboration with Paperpile:
• PDF workflows in the cloud
• Sharing research papers
• Collaborative writing
• Benefits for the end user – a critical look.
• Benefits for institutions and content providers
• Technical challenges
Basic principles
• Integrate with existing workflows. Don’t re-invent.
• Be open = interoperable.
• Remove any technical barriers that would only help us
as a company and not the customer
• Get out of the way. Don’t take yourself too seriously.
Collect references, PDFs, supplementary material
Search online across multiple databases Import local PDFs
Capture PDFs from publisher’s page
Save supplementary material
through Chrome extension
Paperpile and IEEE Xplore
• Gives the user the familiar experience of their favorite
databases (integrate with existing workflows)
• Benefit from features of original resource (don’t re-invent)
• Provides all important features (one-click import, PDF
download, fast access to locally cached PDFs) without
opening Paperpile (get out of the way)
Integration with web databases
Sync to Google Drive
Web
MobileDesktop
Use data in Google Drive and beyond
Search all your data Share or open with other applications
Benefits of storing data in Google Drive
• Part of Google Apps ecosystem
• It’s a (cloud) operating system like Windows or OS X
• An operating system has more to offer than storing files:
• Secure, federated login (remove barriers)
• Integrated with other Apps like Gmail, Docs,... (integrate with existing
workflows)
• Data can be opened on any device with any Application at any time
(be open = interoperable)
Collaborative PDF annotation for Google Drive

Real-time collaborative annotations and
comments
Rich, standards compliant annotations Transparent sync to Google Drive
Sharing papers
Evelyn Dixon Stev
steven.mitchell@example.edu
• Send to your Gmail contacts (i.e. actual colleagues) not users of a particular software
(integrate with existing workflows)
• Send a private sharing link, no download of other software or account required (remove
barriers, get out of the way)
• No big attachments: Meta-data, full text PDF and supplementary files are available
immediately for everyone with the link and a web browser
• Private links can be shared by any means (be open = interoperable)
Sharing papers with Slack and Twitter
Shared folders: collaboration among Paperpile users
Scientific writing is massively collaborative

How to write a paper with 76 authors?
• Central application for Google Apps/Chromebook users (integrate with existing
workflows).
• Free, no Paperpile account required (remove barriers)
• Full featured, can produce even the most advanced citations and bibliographies
• Fully collaborative
Google Docs integration
Advanced Google Docs integration
• Search personal library and online resources in one dialog - no
need to open Paperpile (get out of the way).
• Keyboard shortcuts – no mouse required
Validation
• Does Paperpile provide real value for real people?
• Are we building something people really want?
• If so, it can be a rewarding experience for us as company and
our customers who use our software every day.
• If not, we have failed. We would not like anyone to use our
software because:
• They don’t know any better alternatives
• It’s “good enough” and free
• Their university told them it’s great
• We told them it’s great
Pre-launch user research
Hypothesis: academics are not happy with their
research management workflow
Hmmm... Zotero got me
through my PhD, and the
import button is fantastic
BUT the application
always felt a little clunky.
Having to use bib,
Dropbox and rsync to get
everything sorted and
available on all devices
Oh god! Don't get me
started!
I want to be able to create
and store all of my
references for a Google
Doc and access them
everywhere, there's
nothing that integrates
seamlessly yet. I've been
waiting FOREVER
I use Mendeley, but the
interface is poor and
cannot fetch pdf or
references.
I hate having to download
all the articles myself, and
then separately download
the citations. Help me
save time!!
It's all a mess. Wish I
could do GDocs and not
have to put the doc
through 4 postprocessing
steps to get the refs in.
No good Linux clients! Web-
based solution would be
excellent for those of us that
use many platforms.Not being able to quickly
save and tag a reference.
I get lazy, don't do it
properly, and I lose it.
Keeping everything in sync
across machines/platforms
Lack of cross-platform
compatibility and poor
BibTeX support.
We collected more than 500 individual opinions before we even started
How did users react after launch?
23
Don’t believe what they say – observe what they do
• Users who have tried all other products on the market switch
to Paperpile
• Users switch from free alternatives to Paperpile (which costs
money)
• Users use it for mission critical tasks
• Notoriously busy people switch to Paperpile
Researchers use it for their most important papers…

Statistics of Paperpile
customers
Survey based on 700 completed surveys among Paperpile customers in October 2015
What are the benefits for institutions and
content providers?
• We are convinced that the benefits for end-users and institutions
and content providers are tightly aligned
• If content is accessible in a robust, efficient and fun way,
usage will increase
• “They will find/read/cite it anyway” is not true
• Amazon found every 100ms of latency cost them 1% in sales.
• Google found an extra 0.5 seconds in search page generation
time dropped traffic by 20%.
• What if it takes 20 seconds to cite paper?

compared to same period (April-October) for EndNote Web in 2013
Technical challenges – our wish list for content
providers and publishers
• Provide accurate and complete meta-data in machine
readable format
• Simplify paywalls and make them more robust. We observe
users running into trouble downloading PDFs even though
their institution has paid for the content.
• Re-visit manuscript preparation guidelines. Users worry too
much about details which should not matter in a digital age.
• Provide manuscript preparation guidelines also for machines
to allow authoring platforms to support direct submissions.

Cloud-based research collaboration with Paperpile

  • 1. Academic collaborative networks Cloud-based research collaboration with Paperpile Stefan Washietl, co-founder NFAIS webinar, Nov 12th 2015
  • 2. Hierarchy of academic networks Individual researcher Research group Collaborations of groups “Offline” social network Global, public, online network Our main interest This talk Blogs, Twitter, Mendeley, Research Gate,… Conferences, seminars, social events…
  • 3. Paperpile - a modern reference manager paperpile.com
  • 4. Outline • Examples of academic collaboration with Paperpile: • PDF workflows in the cloud • Sharing research papers • Collaborative writing • Benefits for the end user – a critical look. • Benefits for institutions and content providers • Technical challenges
  • 5. Basic principles • Integrate with existing workflows. Don’t re-invent. • Be open = interoperable. • Remove any technical barriers that would only help us as a company and not the customer • Get out of the way. Don’t take yourself too seriously.
  • 6. Collect references, PDFs, supplementary material Search online across multiple databases Import local PDFs Capture PDFs from publisher’s page Save supplementary material through Chrome extension
  • 8. • Gives the user the familiar experience of their favorite databases (integrate with existing workflows) • Benefit from features of original resource (don’t re-invent) • Provides all important features (one-click import, PDF download, fast access to locally cached PDFs) without opening Paperpile (get out of the way) Integration with web databases
  • 9. Sync to Google Drive Web MobileDesktop
  • 10. Use data in Google Drive and beyond Search all your data Share or open with other applications
  • 11. Benefits of storing data in Google Drive • Part of Google Apps ecosystem • It’s a (cloud) operating system like Windows or OS X • An operating system has more to offer than storing files: • Secure, federated login (remove barriers) • Integrated with other Apps like Gmail, Docs,... (integrate with existing workflows) • Data can be opened on any device with any Application at any time (be open = interoperable)
  • 12. Collaborative PDF annotation for Google Drive marie@example.com marie@example.edu Marie Lucas New Scien st - Primate issue 2014.pdf www.metapdf.com Real-time collaborative annotations and comments Rich, standards compliant annotations Transparent sync to Google Drive
  • 13. Sharing papers Evelyn Dixon Stev steven.mitchell@example.edu • Send to your Gmail contacts (i.e. actual colleagues) not users of a particular software (integrate with existing workflows) • Send a private sharing link, no download of other software or account required (remove barriers, get out of the way) • No big attachments: Meta-data, full text PDF and supplementary files are available immediately for everyone with the link and a web browser • Private links can be shared by any means (be open = interoperable)
  • 14. Sharing papers with Slack and Twitter
  • 15. Shared folders: collaboration among Paperpile users
  • 16. Scientific writing is massively collaborative Year 98 99 00 01 02 03 04 05 06 07 08 09 10 11 1200 1000 800 600 400 200 Numberofpapers > 50 authors > 100 authors > 500 authors > 1,000 authors > 200 authors Source: Thomson Reuters, sciencewatch.com , 2012
  • 17. How to write a paper with 76 authors?
  • 18. • Central application for Google Apps/Chromebook users (integrate with existing workflows). • Free, no Paperpile account required (remove barriers) • Full featured, can produce even the most advanced citations and bibliographies • Fully collaborative Google Docs integration
  • 19. Advanced Google Docs integration • Search personal library and online resources in one dialog - no need to open Paperpile (get out of the way). • Keyboard shortcuts – no mouse required
  • 20. Validation • Does Paperpile provide real value for real people? • Are we building something people really want? • If so, it can be a rewarding experience for us as company and our customers who use our software every day. • If not, we have failed. We would not like anyone to use our software because: • They don’t know any better alternatives • It’s “good enough” and free • Their university told them it’s great • We told them it’s great
  • 21. Pre-launch user research Hypothesis: academics are not happy with their research management workflow Hmmm... Zotero got me through my PhD, and the import button is fantastic BUT the application always felt a little clunky. Having to use bib, Dropbox and rsync to get everything sorted and available on all devices Oh god! Don't get me started! I want to be able to create and store all of my references for a Google Doc and access them everywhere, there's nothing that integrates seamlessly yet. I've been waiting FOREVER I use Mendeley, but the interface is poor and cannot fetch pdf or references. I hate having to download all the articles myself, and then separately download the citations. Help me save time!! It's all a mess. Wish I could do GDocs and not have to put the doc through 4 postprocessing steps to get the refs in. No good Linux clients! Web- based solution would be excellent for those of us that use many platforms.Not being able to quickly save and tag a reference. I get lazy, don't do it properly, and I lose it. Keeping everything in sync across machines/platforms Lack of cross-platform compatibility and poor BibTeX support. We collected more than 500 individual opinions before we even started
  • 22. How did users react after launch?
  • 23. 23 Don’t believe what they say – observe what they do • Users who have tried all other products on the market switch to Paperpile • Users switch from free alternatives to Paperpile (which costs money) • Users use it for mission critical tasks • Notoriously busy people switch to Paperpile
  • 24. Researchers use it for their most important papers… Nature Biotechnology 6/2014 Science 4/2015 “We gratefully acknowledge the collaborative platform from Google Docs, Paperpile and GitHub”
  • 25. 25 … and grants on which their funding depends

  • 27. What are the benefits for institutions and content providers? • We are convinced that the benefits for end-users and institutions and content providers are tightly aligned • If content is accessible in a robust, efficient and fun way, usage will increase • “They will find/read/cite it anyway” is not true • Amazon found every 100ms of latency cost them 1% in sales. • Google found an extra 0.5 seconds in search page generation time dropped traffic by 20%. • What if it takes 20 seconds to cite paper?
  • 28. Paperpile vs EndNote Web 7549 240 20694 11904 0 5000 10000 15000 20000 25000 All imports Web captures EndNote Web Paperpile Paperpile site license usage compared to EndNote Web at a University in UK with 19000 FTEs. Data shown for the first 7 months of the Paperpile license compared to same period (April-October) for EndNote Web in 2013
  • 29. Technical challenges – our wish list for content providers and publishers • Provide accurate and complete meta-data in machine readable format • Simplify paywalls and make them more robust. We observe users running into trouble downloading PDFs even though their institution has paid for the content. • Re-visit manuscript preparation guidelines. Users worry too much about details which should not matter in a digital age. • Provide manuscript preparation guidelines also for machines to allow authoring platforms to support direct submissions.
