Digital Science Announces Investment in Labtiva; Launch of ReadCube

Digital Science, a division of Macmillan Publishers Ltd., announced an investment in Boston-based start-up Labtiva. The company was founded by two Harvard alumni, Robert McGrath and Siniša Hrvatin, to help researchers manage their information collections more efficiently, starting with content. The company also announced the public launch of Labtiva’s flagship product ReadCube, a free, cross-platform software application that enables researchers to create and manage their personal content library on their desktop and intuitively discover new literature in their field through a recommendation system.

Annette Thomas, CEO of Macmillan Publishers, announced Digital Science’s investment in Labtiva and release of ReadCube at the Frankfurt Book Fair to an audience of STM publishers and industry leaders.

“Macmillan has a long history and reputation in the scientific information space—through the work of Nature Publishing Group and now, Digital Science,” said Thomas. “ReadCube provides a sophisticated yet lightweight interface for consumers of scientific content, helping to enhance the reading experience and discovery process for researchers, allowing them to keep on top of the latest literature. I firmly believe in the promise of ReadCube, and welcome Labtiva to Digital Science’s portfolio.”

Labtiva joins Digital Science’s other portfolio companies, including SureChem, BioData, 1DegreeBio, and Symplectic. Together these provide a range of state-of-the-art software and services that make research more effective.
