Read Cube is a desktop application, for Windows and Mac, that is designed to help students organize their research. Read Cube provides a place for students to save and annotate scholarly documents. Through Read Cube students can search Google Scholar and Pub Med. Students can also import to Read Cube PDFs that they find elsewhere. The video below offers a short overview of what Read Cube can do.

Applications for Education
When you download Read Cube, it will ask you for your university email. Don't be discouraged by that, I was able to register using my K-12 school email account. But the fact they ask for your university email account is an indication that Read Cube is clearly targeted to a higher ed audience. Still, Read Cube could be useful for some high school students working on long-term research assignments. You might also consider using it yourself for your next continuing education course.
