Their project, called Smooosh, is a Chrome Extension which makes reading scholarly articles easier. Smooosh replaces long citations like ‘(2008; see also Rayner, White, Johnson, & Liversedge, 2006)’ with ‘(…)’ and displays the original citation on mouse over. Smooosh increases comprehension by extracting and formatting the essential parts of the article using the Readability library.
