About us

A tool born out of frustration

ResearchMate™ is initiated by me, Carina Carlhed. I am a researcher that searched for an effective tool to help me sort and process all the digital text, which I am supposed to overhaul when summarizing the state of the art in my research field.

For years I was storing files at different places, on my computer at work, and on the private laptop and I read and annotated articles on my Samsung tablet on the bus. But, all my efforts to be more digital and effective created a constant feeling of not having things under control or doubt of the degree of systematic process of my readings.

I started to search for useful tools and believe me, I have tried many promising programs, but often I have given up when I saw the thick manuals or when I realized that I would need to take a course to learn how to use it.

There are too many complicated programs with many “smart” features, but which I haven’t had the time or energy to grasp. All I needed was a simple tool, that I could use instantly, which could help me keep track on my sources, to help me overview my workflow and articles that I planned to read. I also deeply wished that I could find a tool that helped me withdraw the essentials from the text and keep it in one place, where I easily could find it again.

In the end I realized that the only way to get this is to create it myself. My partners in ResearchMate™ Simon and Ahsan, were the ones I first talked to, in order to find out if it was possible to create such a tool. Fortunately, they believed in the idea. After taking the idea to the business incubator Uppsala Innovation Centre, we were admitted to their Business Start Up Program.

I hope you will enjoy ResearchMate™ as much as I do and that it will bring you a sense of relief – that ResearchMate™ is strengthen your work with the important systematics and sense of control that so many are searching for.

You can spend your energy on other things now or be more effective – that is your choice. Good luck!
