Keenious for Universities

Keenious is designed to help students, researchers, and librarians discover hard-to-find research articles. Built in collaboration with universities, Keenious is an innovative tool that enhances higher education and research.

Built on the back of research

Unlike other discovery and search tools, Keenious is not designed to automate the research process. Instead, our goal is to help people discover information they might have missed using traditional search methods. We know that traditional search engines are effective, but we provide something that search simply can't offer. No matter how advanced search becomes, people are limited by their prior knowledge to formulate search terms. Keenious is different because recommendations do not require keywords.

We take research seriously

Our studies show that using Keenious in tandem with traditional search tools can increase the amount of relevant information found by up to 100%. And these results are different, leading to potentially new avenues of research.
