Researcher.Life, a Cactus Communications (CACTUS) brand, will provide video-based content through the R Discovery product as part of a partnership with Underline Science, a company that brings science and scholarship on a single platform by offering an on-demand video repository of worldwide scientific and citable lectures and conferences.

This strong partnership will enable the global research community to access scientific knowledge through a digital video library offering content in science, medicine, academia, and other professional fields. Underline’s content will be integrated with the R Discovery app, making it globally accessible to all its users.

Commenting on the partnership, Abhishek Goel, CEO & Co-founder, CACTUS, said, “Recent research suggests that viewers remember a significantly larger portion of a message when delivered by video, rather than text. So, it is imperative that we have more video-based content in such an important area, i.e., research. Our collaboration with Underline Science is a stepping stone in creating new dimensions of content. We believe this will enhance R Discovery’s position as a truly one-stop solution for all research content.”

Alex Lazinica, CEO, Underline Science, said, “At Underline, our mission is to digitize scientific knowledge through videos, making it a globally accessible and a useful content source. Currently, the 40,000+ videos available in the Underline Digital Video Library are solid proof that Underline Science offers a truly academic viewing experience. Our collaboration with R Discovery will help us in reaching out to an even wider audience through a completely new platform.”
