How do I upgrade/transfer my Papers 3 Library into ReadCube Papers?

Upgrading to ReadCube Papers

As an existing Papers user, you are eligible for 40% off the standard rates for the new ReadCube Papers apps. To recieve your special link, please complete this form which includes your existing Papers  license key.  Within 1 business day, you will recieve a custom link to complete the upgrade. 

You will be asked to create a new ReadCube Papers account if you haven't already. You can use the same details as you did with Papers 3, but you won't see past purchases as it a new authentication system. 


Transferring your Library

Easily migrate your Papers 3 library into ReadCube Papers while retaining all of your annotations and organization from your current Papers3 library. We also have a video to walk you through the process or you can read through the step-by-step process below:
