How Paperpal’s Research Feature Helps You Develop and Strengthen Arguments in a Pinch

Research, Write, Cite with Paperpal

After months of reading and research, you’ve got your findings together and you’re making steady progress on your manuscript draft. As you expand your skeleton and infuse your raw notes with detail, you substantiate the material with meticulously curated sources. Your manuscript writing session is going well, and you hit flow state. Finally, your methods section is down, and you’ve got most of the introduction done without a hitch. You worked hard organizing your literature sources and thematic insights, and it’s all paying off. 

Then, you hit the Discussion. As you write, an idea enters the edge of your consciousness – perhaps a line of thinking that did not previously occur to you? It’s too good to dismiss, but you will need to verify and back it up with the literature. So now you’re missing a source, your writing flow is interrupted, and you’re already considering jumping into the rabbit hole of multiple search tabs to arrive at the answer you need. 

If this sounds all too familiar, try out Paperpal’s Research feature to get rich insights from the literature without breaking a sweat.

Interrupting the writing process to verify information online can slow you down and end up being a huge distraction. Now, you never need to break your writing momentum or switch between multiple browser tabs looking for insights. Paperpal’s Research feature makes it easy for you to get quick factual answers to questions on your research on the go, helping you strengthen your arguments as you write.  

Simply ask Paperpal’s AI research assistant a question in plain English and you will get a well-organized response summarizing details relevant to your questions, backed by real published sources from over 250 million research articles. You can then review the response, copy it into the editor to work into your writing, and save the relevant references in your citation library as a handy reminder to insert it later.

Review and verify sources

Aside from the sources referenced in the answer, we also provide Related papers. Briefly skim the relevant meta data such as citations, journal and article type, and then access the abstract for a given paper to ensure the relevance of the information provided by our AI research assistant.

Save relevant sources to cite

You can also explore each article in depth, with full papers available to read for open access documents. Once you’re satisfied with the response and the source, you can easily copy the response and work it into your own narrative. We’ve also made it super easy to keep track of the sources by allowing you to save them into your own citation library and cite it in your text.
