A key step for any academic writing project is research. You can start this process with ComWriter by searching more than 2 billion records in our online library to find books, videos, journal articles and other research material, importing your own references, or manually adding reference data to build your personal library. Add resources to projects to create bibliographies, or add them to groups for easy retrieval.
Add your own resources into a wide range of easy-to-use bibliographic records. Store pdfs, web clips, images, tables and other media associated with your writing.
Your research material is always available for easy update and editing. Associate a resource/s to any project to find references quickly and produce a bibliography.
Resources added to projects, or inserted into projects (in-text or as footnotes) can be used to create a range of smart lists: bibliography (all resources associated with the project), a cited reference list (only resources cited in-text or in foonotes), or a reading list of uncited resources.
Smart lists are very smart. Simply add a smart list marker in your writing project and when your output is exported, the list will be automatically generated exactly where you placed the marker: contents, list of images, references and end notes. Let ComWriter do all the hard work of numbering and formatting.
Academic writing has been unshackled from formatting using writing objects and pre-defined style guides. Without the constraint of formatting, you can focus on your content. Our wide range of productivity tools will make writing a breeze.
Capture ideas as they flow by adding writing objects (section, heading, paragraph, quote, list, images) that you can re-organize in a flash. Easily insert links from your research library into your writing (references, footnotes, cross-references, URLs).
Define your writing structure as you write with personalized labels that never appear in your output. Use drop'n'drag to re-organize, collapse sections so you can focus on current writing.
All writing projects have a cover, preliminaries (or front matter), a body, an addenda (or back matter). We have provided a brackground structure to make writing easier.
Everything is saved automatically! And, you can save it manually, creating a new version in your history stream.
The Project tab provides a quick snapshot of all your current (or completed) writing projects. Stay advised of impending deadlines, word count limitations.
For each project, you can see important information about it. What style guide it uses, the word count, percentage completion, the number of resources, and when it was last edited.
Update the project settings easily (style guide, due date, word count, language), and export your project or archive as complete.
Projects due in the next 30 days will be highlighted on the Project tab. Overdue projects can easily been seen. If you need to, easily change the due date in project settings.
Style is integral to academic and professional writing with specific academic guidelines for each discipline. Store this important information in a pre-defined style guide (or select one already defined) so you can apply all the academic writing rules to any project, any time.
Numbering of pages, headings, captions is all done automatically to your design requirements and in accordance with cited formats.
Heading, paragraph, quote, lists and caption formatting decisions can be modified without interfering with your written text.
From the range of smart lists (Contents, Images, Footnotes), you can ensure they have professional reference formatting which meets your personal or academic requirements.
Quickly modify the formatting for your header and footer (Cover, Preliminaries, Body, Addenda)…too easy. To preview your project, simply export it to PDF.
