Here are some true statements. (1) Some of my colleagues share paper copies of interesting, relevant research with me. (2) I find new literature on devices that aren’t mine. (3) Manual entry of new literature is sort of a pain on a mobile device.
I want to be able to quickly add relevant literature to my reference management system of choice (e.g. Mendeley or Zotero), and I can probably do it with the help of the camera on my phone and text recognition. Here’s a prototype that I mocked up this afternoon using Adobe XD. You can watch a video walkthrough of it on YouTube here.
