genei for academic writing

How to use genei for academic research, planning, writing, and organisation.

genei is the ideal tool for improving productivity and reducing the time spent researching, planning and writing high-quality, publishable, academic work.

Our user base contains a large number of academics, researchers, and students from a variety of different specialties. Be it for medicine, STEM, politics, history, economics, or more, genei can help to save you time and get you working productively.

So, how can you use genei to help you produce academic work?

  1. For starters, genei can help you to organise and manage your workflow. You can create folders, store documents and generate citations.

To create a project, click on the 'New Project' icon in the bottom left hand corner of the genei dashboard.


You can then title your project.

If you want to create any folders within your project, you can do so by clicking the '+' button by the side of the project in the left hand navigation bar. You can then enter the folder by clicking on it in the project view.


To upload documents to a project or folder click on the '+' page in the project view.


If you already have a set of articles you want to focus on, you can upload them by copying and pasting in a specific webpage URL or dragging and dropping in a PDF file.

If you don't have a pre-determined set of articles you want to research in more details, no worries. You can search in keywords or topics and genei will scrape a variety of databases in order to high quality articles based on your chosen search term.


You can then add these webpages and documents into your genei project for analysis with just the click of a button.

  1. Once you've uploaded or found the documents relevant to your topic area, you can use genei's AI to extract key information from the articles instantly.

Simply click on the chosen article and then click on the overview button in the top right hand corner.


Here you will find:

  • An AI generated summary
  • An extract of the document's contents
  • The most frequently occurring keywords in the document
  • Graphs, figures, tables, and images included within the document
  • All references or links included within the document (these can be opened or added to your project for even further research possibilities)

Combining this information gives you a concise overview of the contents of the document. Furthermore, all the points are hyperlinked to where the information comes from within the document, so you can easily read around on a specific section in more detail.

We've found the overview section helps users to get through documents up to 70% faster.

  1. Now it's time to turn this information into a plan for your writing.

Fortunately, genei includes a number of note taking shortcuts to get information from your documents into your notepad faster.

If you click the 'add to notes' icon by any of the summary or keyword points, they will be automatically added into your notepad and the text will be linked to the document so you can see where it was sourced or read around in more detail with the click of a button.

By working through the overviews in each of your documents, you can very quickly add a large amount of useful information into your notepad.

Overall, 94% of users say genei saves them time when working through documents.

if you want to read any of the documents in more detail, there are also a number of other add to notes shorctuts. For example, by highlighting over a chosen passage of text with your mouse, you can 'click add to notes'. You can also choose to summarise the section before adding, to paraphrase the chosen passage in a more concise, original, and note-like format.


Anything added to notes using one of these shortcuts will include in built hyperlinks so you can easily see where in your project and in which document information was derived from

As well as these AI generated links, you can also produce your own links between notes and parts of the document.

This can help to enrich your understanding of the connections between various articles and make recall easier.

Simply hit the link button next to a chosen passage of your notes. Then highlight over the part of the document you would like to link this information to. Once you click the tick icon, these pieces of text will be linked together. Just click on your writing in the notepad to be taken to this part of the document.


Once you've got all the information that might be useful to you in your notepad, you can structure it in a more useful way for your finished piece of content.

You can easily make headings in the notepad to demarcate sections of your work.

Furthermore, all of the text in genei's notepad is formed as blocks, which means you can easily drag sentences and paragraphs around and place them into an order that suits your content structure.

  1. Once you've restructured the information in your notepad into a useful order, you can use genei's advanced AI features (powered by GPT3) to help begin fleshing out your finished piece of writing from notes to prose.

By highlighting over a chosen passage of text in your notepad, you can choose to 'expand', 'rephrase', or 'summarise' the section.

Expand will develop a short extract of writing into a more developed piece of prose. This can be exceptionally useful for overcoming writers block and for getting the creative juices flowing if you're looking for more words and ideas.

Rephrase will transform a piece of writing into a different style. This can be useful if you've copied a lot of text from a document and you're looking to quickly put it into your own words. It also provides value if you're looking to speak in a certain tone or voice.

Summarise uses our AI to paraphrase your own writing - perfect if you're looking to condense work to meet a word limit or just add some more conciseness to your work.

These AI powered features can help you to write more productively and with more creative potential.

They're part of the reason that 95% of users say genei helps to save them time when researching, writing, and producing content.

  1. Once you're happy, you can generate a citation of the work for your bibliography in a variety of formats.

Furthermore, if you visit the references section at the bottom of the overview, you can automatically view all the works cited in the document and open them in genei for further reading and analysis.

Simply click on a work and open it as a webpage or PDF. You can even drag the green icon for 'Web' or 'PDF' into a project in genei for instant analysis.

This means you can quickly continue your research and open up possibilities for new understanding, insights, evidence, and opinions.

So, that's it - we hope it provided a useful insight into how to use genei in an academic context.
