How can I save articles from the Web Reader to my free account's library?

Next to the "Download PDF" button at the bottom of the Web Reader is the button to an add an article to your ReadCube library. Clicking the Add to Library button will send the article - along with your annotations - to your other ReadCube apps. In the ReadCube Desktop and Mobile apps, the reference metadata will instantly sync. If you had the full-text article in the Web Reader, you will have the option to download the annotated PDF with just one click. Otherwise, if you were viewing an article preview in the Web Reader, just the metadata listing will sync, with the option to download the full-text article in the ReadCube apps using your default access settings.



After you have successfully saved an article to your ReadCube account, the button will change to In Library. To delete an article from your library, click the button again.

Please note that you need to be signed in with the same account on the Web Reader and any apps that you’re syncing to. The free ReadCube Account is used to log in to the ReadCube Desktop, ReadCube Mobile, and ReadCube Web Reader tools.  

If you do not have an account yet, click on the ReadCube logo or the Add to Library button and choose the Sign Up option.

Your browser will remember your specific ReadCube account and keep you logged in if you previously logged in to our website at www.readcube.com or to any other ReadCube Web Reader article.
