About Outread

How a group of experts, researchers, scientists, innovators and professors are bringing the ideas from the best research papers to some of the busiest people on the planet. Outread aims to democratise cutting-edge research information and enable everyone to better understand the world we live in.


Almost none of us have the time to learn everything we’d like to learn. Yet we lose countless hours to activities that bring us little joy such as commuting, chores and staring at our phones. What if we could turn these little blocks of unallocated time into precious and rewarding moments for learning and reflection? Founded in 2022 by two friends, Outread now connects 2300 readers worldwide to the biggest ideas from top research journals via 15-minute audio and text. So what makes us tick?

Creating a meaningful product

To help people integrate fresh and relevant ideas into their busy lives, we created summaries. You get the key insights from top research journals in just 15-minutes, in text or audio to fit the different parts of your day.

Humans before algorithms

We collaborate directly with researchers as well as combing lists of the most prestigious journals, new releases and recommendations to find the most intriguing research articles, which our experts distill into short summaries, fact-checked and quality assured by editors.

Learning Culture

Outread’s built on the belief that knowledge should be easily accessible. Research journals can not only be expsensive, costing upwards of $1000 but also hard to read due to their jargon. We want to democratise information and knowledge from cutting-edge reseaech journals. 

Constant discovery

So far we’ve summarised more than 200 research journals, covering everything from biology and management to philosophy and food science, with new titles added every day. We’re forever finding fresh ways to help people discover research, connect topics and expand their world. Try Outread.
