Utopia Documents v2.3 is a free PDF reader that connects the static content of scientific articles to the dynamic world of online content.
With a brand new look and feel that blend real-time updates with the typographic elegance of published articles, Utopia Documents brings up-to-date information directly to your desktop.
Utopia Documents allows readers to explore cited literature more easily. Working closely with publishers such as Springer, open access journals such as eLife, and repositories such as PMC, we've been able to allow readers to navigate directly to cited articles (where available) or to find an article's online presence.
Utopia Documents' figure browser makes it easy to see the illustrations in an article, providing a graphical overview of a paper's content, and an easy way to navigate from figure to figure.
Utopia Documents makes it easy to explore an article's content and claims, and investigate other recent articles that discuss the same or similar topics.
The scientific article has been described as a Story That Persuades With Data, but all too often the link between data and narrative is lost somewhere in the modern publishing process. Utopia Documents helps to rebuild these connections, linking articles to underlying datasets, and making it easy to access online resources relating to an article's content.
Published articles form the 'minutes of science', creating a stable record of ideas and discoveries. But no idea exists in isolation, and just because something has been published doesn't mean that the story is over. Utopia Documents reconnects PDFs with the ongoing discussion, keeping you up-to-date with the latest knowledge and metrics.
