As social scientists, whether you are a graduate student or a professor, we must read. And we must read a lot. When we start a research, an earlier challenge is to do a quick literature search. There are so many books and journal articles published by various authors on the research question. What are the most worthy research on a topic we are working on? Which ones are worth reading? Given the fact that a typical journal article is 20-25 page long, spending an hour to read an article which does not help your research is frustrating. We sometimes wish that we knew in advance that whether that piece would help our research or not. It would be great if we have access to a short summary of 20-page long article. This is the idea behind the birth of SummaryHub.com long time ago.
As two graduate students, we prepare summaries of journal articles and books we read. Then we decided to create an online platfom where other people can read our summaries and share theirs, if they have their own sumamries. SummaryHub.com can help you in many ways.
