How do I access my documents on multiple devices?
We are currently working on adding cloud synchronisation features to Zenreader. When these are released, you will be able to access all of your work across multiple devices.
Please have a look at our tutorial on how to synchronise your project data across multiple devices using other cloud tools, such as Google Drive, One Drive or Dropbox.
Are there android or iOS versions of Zenreader?
We know that it is important to be able to access your work on mobile devices as well, including tablets. Plans for mobile apps are in place, with likely releases in the near future.
Can I share my work and collaborate with others?
We are developing collaboration features that will allow you to invite your group to work on your project. These will be available soon..
Can I import webpages and annotate them?
Yes, currently you can provide a link to a webpage which Zenreader converts into a PDF. This means that you can have a snapshot of that webpage in case it changes in the future.
We are working on developing browser plugins to make this process much smoother.
Can I import a bibliography / literature from Endnote, Mendeley, etc.?
We are working on this, currently Zenreader comes with a document metadata detector and you can always point a project to Endnote’s / Mendeley’s library to load the same documents. We offer 1900+ citation styles.
Have a read of our tutorial on how to make Zenreader work alongside other reference management softwares.
In what formats can I export my work?

We are working on being able to export directly to Evernote, Google Drive, OneNote.
Does Zenreader make it easier for people to copy other people's work & plagiarise?
Absolutely the opposite
. Zenreader makes it much easier to avoid unintentional plagiarism
, since anything that is copied or pasted from original sources comes with the citation sadly zenreader.
Please read the information on plagiarism
and how Zenreader is helping users avoid it.
Can Zenreader automatically summarise documents for me?
No, sadly Zenreader doesn’t have a magical “summarise all” button just yet (although, if it were possible to have such a feature, it would only be available for strictly non-student users only).
Can Zenreader's automation features get my assignment, research or work done with one click?
No, you will still have to do everything yourself manually.
Zenreader’s smart tools and algorithms are there to minimise the time taken on low-value activities such as searching for things, copying citations/references/text from one point to another, managing duplicated information, finding connections between pieces of information.
Is there any science or research behind Zenreader?
Yes, Zenreader's features and overall design are based on the best methodologies for learning, research and productivity.
We are preparing a research and resources section on our website to share these methodologies.
How does Zenreader save me time?
Zenreader cuts repetitive, low-value, time-consuming tasks from your research and knowledge work.
Because Zenreader is an all-in-one software it means that in each screen and tool, you can rapidly access all the work that you have done.
This alone can boost productivity by 2x, 3x compared to using other tools.
Why will Zenreader make my work more fun and enjoyable?
Zenreader is beautifully designed, making it a pleasure to work with. Zenreader's tools have been designed to make your work more fun by helping you focus on high-value interesting activities, cutting away the boring, tedious and time-consuming tasks.
Over many years, we have investigated how the top researchers in the world collect, organise and access their work. We have learned a lot about what works well and what doesn't work well.
Can Zenreader train my research skills?
Yes, we have developed some effective methods to organising information and structuring knowledge. These are part ouf our training material that comes with the software.
Moreover, we are writing a book about our methodologies and what we have learned over the years in terms of productivity.
What if I don't have budget to pay for Zenreader?
Zenreader is extremely valuable especially since it makes you more productive and effective.
We will make sure that those who cannot afford to pay for Zenreader can still have access to the technology, since we believe that what we offer should be accessible to everyone.

Will Zenreader be free for students?
We want to make Zenreader free for all students.
