The new add-on expands the collaborative writing capabilities of Google Docs by integrating the document management tools of Flow during the authoring phase of research. As a result, researchers can find, share and annotate documents in the cloud, then author as a team in a common virtual workspace, supported by automated citations and bibliographies. The free add-on is available in the Google Add-on Store.
“Our goal is to integrate research and citation management into every phase of the research process, from the point a resource is discovered and needs to be stored and organized through to the writing of new papers,” said Michael Hirsch, ProQuest vice-president, product management. “This add-on for Google Docs is a great example of how Flow is doing that. We’ve turned separate steps in the research workflow into a more streamlined process that saves time, reduces the potential for errors and eliminates confusion.”
