Utopia Documents 2.1 released, incorporating PLOS article-level metrics


Lost Island Labs Ltd has, in collaboration with Academic Concept Knowledge Ltd (AQnowledge), released an update of its Utopia Documents scientific semantic PDF-reader. Version 2.1 is now available to download from http://utopiadocs.com.

Utopia Documents is available for Mac, Windows and Linux, at no cost. Lost Island Labs and AQnowledge are committed to the continuous development of enrichment features for scientific literature, enabling readers to make the most from reading their journal articles. Utopia Documents’ features are unsurpassed. A notable addition to version 2.1 is the inclusion of article level metrics, up-to-date to the moment the PDF is opened with Utopia Documents, irrespective of when the PDF was downloaded or opened before.

This is implemented for PLOS articles, but is available upon request for the material of any publisher who wishes their up-to-date article level metrics to be displayed in the PDF versions of their articles. Also its algorithms for linking from articles to related information, including to scientific materials and methods, has undergone further improvement.
