I just received an email from Peerus “letting me know” that my paper was published. While it sells itself as a paper monitoring app, better than google scholar, it does seem to be closer to academia.edu.

I do find deceptive in their email the large orange button with Find your papers on peerus followed in small by by clicking you accept our TCU.

Also I don’t understand how they want to monetize their product. The website claims to be free (for researchers) but does not give any additional information.

So does someone has experience with their service? How do they compare with google scholar / academia.edu (which seems to have a bad rep as seen in this question Is Academia.edu useful?)?
