Services to help you stay on top of your game.
The online community for discovering and discussing inspiring research topics.
Microsoft Academic helps researchers like you connect with the most personally relevant papers, conferences, people, and ideas, via artificial intelligence (AI) bots that read, understand, and deliver the scientific news and papers to further your work. It helps you stay abreast of developments, discover new ideas, and collaborate with others in the academic community, propelling your research—and your reputation—further, faster.
Microsoft Research is experimenting with new social features and we’d like academia to be part of our product development research. It’s easy to join, get an invitation code by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org and learn more here.
