Help us transform scientific publishing with Notebooks

Science shouldn’t be published in PDF files with tiny text/figures. With Notebooks, we can create interactive tours through data and analysis — and publish first class web based articles. It’s the future of the scientific article. Join us.

What is a Notebook?

A notebook brings together writing, code and data in human & machine readable format that can be shared and executed by other scientists. Notebooks convert to highly readable web-based articles that can maintain their original interactivity.

Publish your science with the same tools you use to do science.

Most science starts life in code like Python, R, and computational notebooks. Why waste time converting it all to Word before publishing?

Why publish in notebooks?

Better Reading Experience
Reproducible Methods
Easier Publishing

A beautiful, interactive reading experience.

Notebook based papers define the state-of-the art in science communication, making complex topics easier to explore and digest.

Interactive charts
Ask the data questions and focus on a region of interest.
Follow cross references in-place
See Figure 2 right where it's referenced. No scrolling needed.
So you don't have to go hunt for where the authors defined Special Term (ST) on page 2.
Light mode / dark mode
More accessible, and more comfortable for late nights in the lab.

Notebooks make it easier for scientists to build on each others’ work.

Notebook-based articles include all data, code, analysis — and now, with Curvenote's Binder integration, they can execute that code live in-article too.

Access code & data behind any article
See a useful graph in a paper you're reading, and want to apply it top your own data? Copy-paste the code.
Ipywidget-based interactive figures
Want let people change a predicted value and see the graph re-draw in real time? You can do that!
Launch a Jupyter server on demand
Got an idea to extend a study? Pull the Notebook into your own coding app and start hacking.

A different publishing experience

Machine-readable Notebooks are faster and easier to publish than traditional Word-based articles for both authors and journals.

Pre-submission screening and feedback for authors.
No endless submission forms. All info is pulled from your notebook. Plus automatic quality control checks!
Automated high quality typesetting
Export your article with any style template instantly, in HTML and traditional PDF.
Higher impact
Notebook-based articles are easier for search engines like Google to discover and digest than PDFs.

Some of our work: We design and deploy notebook publishing systems for major journals.

Give your authors and readers a state-of-the-art reading and publishing experience, so new science can reach the people who need it sooner.

American Geophysical Union

We're helping the American Geophysical Union accept computational notebooks as a submission format in their journal and elevating notebooks as standard within the scientific record.

Microscopy Society of America

The Microscopy Society of America already created many amazing computational notebooks, and needed a system to organize them and publish new ones.


We upgraded Physiome’s journal infrastructure for accepting submissions in LaTeX and integration with their repository of domain-specific reproducible models.

Frequently asked questions

How do you link readers to Notebooks once they're published?

It’s like a web article. The DOI URL links to a web article with interactivity and live computation, and you can dive into the attached notebooks through links.

Can you integrate notebook publishing with traditional article publishing?

Yes! Notebooks can be published through a complementary system, or typically we're also able to hook-in to whatever quality control and peer review software you're using now, and have worked with major systems like eJournalPress before.

How do Notebooks eliminate author submission forms?

Because Notebooks are machine readable, we can extract pieces like titles and authors so accurately from the article file that the authors uploads that we don't need to ask authors to re-type that information.

"We can help your favorite journal publish Notebooks. We work with the open source community developing technologies like MyST Markdown that adds technical communication features to standard notebooks. Now we're now helping journals integrate notebooks into their publishing and quality control workflows.
