Literature review made easy

Find papers faster

Litmaps changes the way researchers discover articles and conduct research. Traditional methods using keyword search and sifting through references simply don't scale to the millions of papers out there.

Instead, Litmaps uses the citation network to discover literature that's easily overlooked with other search methods. This, combined with our ever-evolving algorithms and automated alert system, means never missing a relevant paper again.
