Reading research is a risk. Let Forage guide you.

Forage was born out of a frustration with getting into research as an undergrad. Our host institution didn’t quite have research that truly interested us, but more importantly, this discovery required an extreme number of hours of “grasping in the dark” hoping that we might develop just enough intuition to inform future searches.

While we have learned much since then, we set out to build Forage. A tool that visualizes research connectivity, strives to summarize academic research accurately, and works to enhance a reader’s ability to understand singular texts without scurrying down the rabbit hole of references.

Ultimately, we hope that Forage can service at least two groups:

  1. Up-and-coming students who are considering/pursuing researchers.
  2. Current researchers seek to gain knowledge outside of their field, or generally consume academic content more quickly.
