How it works

Easily set up sharable projects.

Create projects for your research to organise findings and easily share with colleagues or supervisors.


Search within all documents.

No more going through documents one by one. Find relevant information within all your papers in one search.

Lateral AI finds text for you!

Lateral AI shows you similar text to search results and finds text for you based on what you label.



“I can recommend Lateral to anyone working with lots of documents at the same time. It really saves time and hassle, and is very easy to navigate.”
