Digital Science, a division of Macmillan Publishers, has invested in Labtiva, a Boston-based start-up that aims to help researchers manage their information collections more efficiently. The deal was announced by Macmillan CEO Annette Thomas at the STM Franfurt conference.

Labtiva is also launching its flagship product ‘ReadCube’, a free, cross-platform software application that enables researchers to create and manage their personal content library on their desktop, and discover new literature in their field through a recommendation system.

'As a researcher myself, I understand the need to find a simpler way to discover and keep on top of the thousands of articles published every day,' commented Siniša Hrvatin, co-founder of Labtiva. Hrvatin co-founded the company with Robert McGrath in 2007.
