General Research Resources
The following websites provide useful resources for researchers.
Anonymous GitHub allows you to simply anonymize your GitHub repository. Several anonymisation options are available to ensure that you do not break the double-anonymise such as removing links, images or specific terms. You still keep control of your repository and define an expiration date to make your repository unavailable after the review.
Conference Ranks is a website that allows you to lookup the rank of a conference.
Connected Papers is a visual tool to help researchers and applied scientists find academic papers relevant to their field of work.
Elicit can find relevant papers without perfect keyword matches, summarise takeaways from the paper specific to your question, and extract key information from the papers.
Google Scholar is a freely accessible web search engine that indexes the full text or metadata of scholarly literature across an array of publishing formats and disciplines.
Grammarly is an American cloud-based typing assistant. It reviews spelling, grammar, punctuation, clarity, engagement, and delivery mistakes in English texts, detects plagiarism and suggests replacements for the identified errors. It also allows users to customise their style, tone, and context-specific language.

Mendeley is a reference manager software founded in 2007 by PhD students Paul Foeckler, Victor Henning, Jan Reichelt and acquired by Elsevier in 2013. It is used to manage and share research papers and generate bibliographies for scholarly articles.
Overleaf is a collaborative cloud-based LaTeX editor used for writing, editing and publishing scientific documents. It partners with a wide range of scientific publishers to provide official journal LaTeX templates and direct submission links.
ResearchGate is a European commercial social networking site for scientists and researchers to share papers, ask and answer questions, and find collaborators.
Sci-Hub is a shadow library website that provides free access to millions of research papers and books, without regard to copyright, by bypassing publishers’ paywalls in various ways. Sci-Hub was founded in Kazakhstan by Alexandra Elbakyan in 2011, in response to the high cost of research papers behind paywalls.
Excel file that contains a list of all Scopus-indexed journals and conferences.
