Make, comment on, and share citations.

There's a universe of research information you didn't even know you had an appetite for, one expanding at a rate of 1.5 million (that's 1,500,000) papers a year.

You have questions-

-research has answers:
  • Is coffee bad for my health?
  • Do cellphones cause cancer?
  • What's the fastest way to gain muscle mass?
We've all thought of questions that require rigorous science to answer. For the vast majority of people, those answers are hidden away in primary sources like scientific papers while only a few intrepid souls brave the world of academic publishing to satisfy their own curiosity. But there hasn't been a good way to share those answers - or a process that went into finding them. That's why we built Project Credo.

Project Credo is a smart way to share and evaluate research.

In it, one contributor can save other people hundreds of collective hours of research by adding papers to a shared list. Users can also push papers to the top of the list by voting on them. You can add papers by searching for them, by URL, or by IDs like DOI or Pubmed IDs. And when you're done, or you want feedback, you can share your list with colleagues to add or comment on papers.  Make a list for everyone to see so people no one has to search for the same papers. 

Why Patreon?

We don't like ads or paywalls so we are looking for ways to support our site. Patreon lets you become patrons if you believe in our mission. It also gives us an easy way to keep in touch.

How can I help?

If you believe in us, believe in the site, or just have too much money burning holes in your pockets, you can help keep our site (and us) afloat by becoming a patron on our Patreon page. We both left full-time jobs to take this as far as we can, so anything we can do to buy ramen would be an improvement, at this point.  Sign up on our website and help people discover the best research!  Please also fill out our survey to help us understand how best to serve our community.

But we will offer you $10 worth of appreciation monthly!

Okay, at this point, you should have read the warning about us not knowing what to do about you giving us $10/month. What would we even do with $100 a month? We'd probably waste it on confetti and vuvuzelas.
That's a lot of money!
$1,000 or more per creation 0 patrons
A thousand dollars? Are you crazy? What are you, the money whisperer? Have you shown Benjamin Franklin that you're the alpha in this relationship? Have you tamed the wild Bitcoin and ridden it to the pot o' gold at the end of the rainbow?

Whatever the source o' your plenty, we're glad t' have it. But you could be investing it in index funds.
