Transparency has become a publication requirement.

Today, when academics are being faced with the loss of control over their intellectual property, at a time when faculty have no collective bargaining power, and ruinous technology transfer requirements are built into tenure-track contracts, the only way to ensure independence from being used as idea-horse to further the financial enrichment of corrupt university interests (predatory administrators who do not fulfill their obligation to guard the independence of basic research) only wide-ranging and free-access dissemination of new ideas, that must be tested in the public realm by the widest possible critical audience, we depend on applications like this one to keep freedom alive. And to drive the next generation of independent researchers. Universities were created to protect and promote basic research! Not to make cash-cows out of out best and most brilliant! Keep publishing freely and independently to fulfill the promise to mankind that science makes to respect but not to obey the Popes, and kings, and voracious Provost's. We pay you to protect us! We ARE science! Remember. The next auto-da-fe will have your name on it.

Amazing app

I had been using the Academia from last 5 years, its been amazing with the website. It helped me to upload and publish my articles to the people. Its the most convenient way to find more stuff for reading and acknowledging the work by the people in your field.
But after the app comes in it became a part of day to day life because now we can use it on the go anyway anywhere anytime.
Thank you for this app and website.

Persistent Issues hamper an otherwise excellent and useful app

I’ve used academia for a good few months now and have enjoyed it. However, recently, I’ve run into a key issue that pretty much hamstrings it. Any time I try to actually read an article, the article’s text simply doesn’t load. The “About” and “Related” sections load near instantly, but the “Read” section, the actual text of the article I’m wanting to use, never does. I could understand if it were a matter of these articles being paywalled like some results on the app are (even if I find paywalling content when features are already paywalled disagreeable, but that’s a minor issue), but there’s no prompt alerting me to needing to be a premium member or the like, just an infinite loading screen. This says nothing of the hard crashes caused by going to specific papers from the links Academia will periodically email to me. Academia is still useful for keeping track of particular scholars and publications in my field, but right now, it’s useless for what I actually want to use it for: reading the articles that it helps me to find.
