1. Ensure you are set for organizational deployment

Please see the organizational deployment guide

  • Open Source or Commercial:
    • Proxy Repository - Create a proxy nuget repository on Nexus, Artifactory Pro, or a proxy Chocolatey repository on ProGet. Point your upstream to Packages cache on first access automatically. Make sure your choco clients are using your proxy repository as a source and NOT the default community repository. See source command for more information.
    • You can also just download the package and push it to a repository Download

3. Enter your internal repository url

4. Choose your deployment method:

choco upgrade sciencefair -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'" [other options]

See options you can pass to upgrade.

See best practices for scripting.

Add this to a PowerShell script or use a Batch script with tools and in places where you are calling directly to Chocolatey. If you are integrating, keep in mind enhanced exit codes.

If you do use a PowerShell script, use the following to ensure bad exit codes are shown as failures:

choco upgrade sciencefair -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'"

Write-Verbose "Exit code was $exitCode"
$validExitCodes = @(0, 1605, 1614, 1641, 3010)
if ($validExitCodes -contains $exitCode) {
  Exit 0

Exit $exitCode

Why ScienceFair?

How we access, read and reuse scientific literature is largely controlled by a few vast publishing organisations. This is holding society back.

Many wonderful innovations are being explored outside those organisations, but they are rarely integrated into the platforms where people actually access science.

We have a vision of a different, better, future for science. A future that's more fair, inclusive and open. A future that makes it easy to innovate and explore and where users control and customise their experience.


  • Search, collect, read and analyse scientific papers.
  • Clean, modern user interface.
  • Rich interactive reading experience.
  • Distributed data store.
  • Control the datasources you use.
  • Text-mining ready corpus.


  • Science-focused JATS XML reader provided by lens.
  • Distributed data sharing using Dat's hyperdrive.
  • Fast local search index built on searchindex.
  • Created using web technologies with choo and electron.


ScienceFair v1 was developed by Code for Science and FathomLabs along with other contributors, with support from Mozilla Science Lab, eLife and the Dat project.
