(22 Nov 2023) Digital Science has announced it has fully acquired the AI-based academic language service Writefull, which assists users worldwide with all aspects of their scholarly writing. Writefull’s AI language models are trained on billions of sentences taken from millions of journal articles.
Winner of a Digital Science Catalyst Grant in 2016, Writefull has been part-owned by Digital Science since 2018. The start-up represented Digital Science’s first major investment in AI language models.
Writefull’s language services are now used by students and researchers at more than 1,500 institutions, and are integrated into the workflows of top publishers and copy editors, such as at the American Chemical Society (ACS), Hindawi, the British Ecological Society, Sage, and the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC). Writefull’s APIs are also integrated with Digital Science’s collaborative LaTeX editor Overleaf.
