Verste is a student-led nonprofit organization that creates simplified versions of difficult to read research papers. As students, we’ve experienced firsthand how difficult it is to understand a research paper filled with complex vocabulary and scientific concepts. We’re here to change that.
By creating simplified versions of research papers, we provide a stepping stone for high school students and undergraduate researchers reading their first research papers. At the same time, researchers who’ve read plenty of papers in their careers are provided with a consistent experience that allows them to comprehend key points of a research paper in a fast and efficient manner. For more information about us, please visit verste.org/about.
As a nonprofit organization, Verste is made possible by the generous efforts of our volunteers, who dedicate their time into our mission. If you're interested in creating simplified versions of research papers you've read (or read recently!), we'd love for you to join our team of contributors! As a contributor, you'll be able to earn service hours for your contributions, gain knowledge and research experience, and get involved in community and make a difference.
