Updates after feedback

A few weeks ago we announced the results of our first pilot. We got some great feedback from authors and some useful suggestions of how Penelope could be improved. The authors spoke, we listened, and today we are delighted to push some significant updates.

  • We've made our algorithms more resilient to variations in formatting.
  • We've made Penelope’s comments simpler, with clearer differentiation between important things and “nice to haves”.
  • We warn users if they upload something that looks different to a research manuscript.

Our initial feedback was good (85% gave us 7/10 or higher) but with these improvements, we hope to make that even better!
