PDF Viewer

PapersHive has a PDF viewer where you can directly read or annotate in the PDF-documents you have in your collection.

You can see that an article has a PDF associated to it by the PDF-icon at the top left corner.


If an article does not have a PDF, you can still add it through uploading it and attaching it to the entry. See Integrations for more.

Two ways to open the PDF-viewer

There are two ways to navigate to the PDF viewer.

  1. Click the PDF-icon.
  2. Click the highlighted text of the PDF-annotation and the PDF-view will be opened and scroll to the highlighted section.
