All of our summaries are written by graduate students and PhD candidates in the respective subjects that the summaries are. Our Content Area Specialists (as we like to call them) have trained in producing quality, accurate, and digestible content for our readers to understand at their own level and in their own time. From a wide variety of backgrounds, upbringings, and passions, our writers are brought together for the purpose of making academic content more approachable and understandable.

No. Our summaries are not meant to be substitutes for the original articles. In fact, we encourage our readers to read the original versions of the article. We see Bibliate summaries as a supplemental tool that everyone can use to be more successful in understanding critical academic content. Our main goal at Bibliate is to communicate knowledge we believe to be lost in translation, and we think the best way to do that is by reading the full article AND our summaries.
In partnership with Altmetric, we summarize research studies that are most trending, most cited, and most likely to be assigned in higher education.
Each one of our summaries is produced with two foundational approaches: maintaining content accuracy and ensuring comprehensibility. Our summaries take hours to create (depending on the article) and go through a rigorous editing process to make sure the content is true to what original research is trying to convey all while ensuring that anyone can understand the content.
Great question! If there is not a full summary you can find, we recommend using our Summary Generator feature. By using this feature, you automatically show us which research articles we can summarize.
We plan to release “high demand” subjects every year. Our goal is to create several hundred summaries in a given subject every year. To stay up to date on our subject release schedule, we encourage you to sign up for our newsletter or follow us on social media.
