End of Life for Papers 3

November 1, 2020 marks the 2 year anniversary of the roll out of ReadCube Papers, the successor to both the ReadCube (released 2014) and Papers 3 (released 2013) desktop applications.  Just as was done with Papers v1 and Papers v2, we will be ending support for Papers v3 on December 31, 2020. Support for the legacy ReadCube desktop ended August 31, 2020.

End-of-life does not mean that the application will no longer function: you may continue to run and reinstall both the apps, but please note that there will be no additional resources devoted to resolving any bugs or compatibility issues arising from future MacOS or Windows operating system releases. We will continue to offer best-effort advice for those who choose to remain on the legacy software, but note there will be no further improvements or fixes made to Papers 3 after December 31, 2020. 

As with previous Papers upgrades, we are very pleased to offer our existing Papers v1, v2 or v3 users a special discount to upgrade to the new ReadCube Papers software: 40% off standard academic and corporate rates. 

You may also try the new app free for 30-days.

If you choose to continue using the legacy Papers 3 platform, we encourage you to save a back-up of your library regularly and turn off automatic Mac OS updates as the legacy app will not work on Big Sur 11.3+.

Contact MSK's IT Procurement to purchase a discounted license to ReadCube Papers.
