Frequently Asked Questions
- How to change my interests?
Users can always re-select the interests. In the Signup Form, select your new interests and type in the email and password that you used when you first registered the service. Then click “Subscribe” button. You will receive the updated digests the next business day.
- I do not receive daily digest emails on some weekdays, what happened?
There are two possible reasons: (1), arxiv.org may not release new papers in time due to holidays or outages. paperdigesr.org will send out digest emails as soon as those papers are available (usually the next day). (2) If you frequently do not receive update emails, it usually means that the emails have been blocked by your email service provider. We notice that users using emails from qq.com experience this problem frequently. If you are using QQ emails, you need to contact QQ to address it or avoid using qq emails to receive daily updates.
- How are the highlights in the digest emails generated?
Highlights are machine generated using state of the art artificial intelligence techniques (mainly natural language processing and machine learning).
- I get digests for more than 200 papers everyday. Is it possible to get fewer?
Some areas are active like ‘cs.AI’, so it is expected to see a lot of new papers everyday when multiple such active areas are selected. To receive fewer papers, users are encouraged to narrow down the selected interests (see How to change my interests? ).

Digests are sent out Monday-Friday.
