Mek & Tosj today released Papers, a new application designed to revolutionize the way scientists deal with scientific papers. Users can search for papers using PubMed, directly retrieve and archive PDF documents, and read as well as study all material from within Papers. The software offers tabbed as well a s full screen reading of papers, organization of papers in 'Smart' folders, and the ability to download PDF files directly from a publisher's website using built-in WebKit functionality. Papers was developed by Alexander Griekspoor (Mek) and Tom Groothuis (Tosj), both of whom acquired their PhDs in the Neefix laboratories doing biomedical research at the cellular level. The public preview version of Papers is available for free (system requirements were unavailable).
