Chapter in this post:
We got you a little over two years ago at this point provided a list of apps and tools for authors. These offered and still offer various advantages such as distraction-free writing, the Duden examination, thesaurus and more. With SciFlow we have now added another provider to the list. SciFlow is aimed primarily at anyone who writes scientific papers. Regardless of whether it is a manuscript, journal entry, specialist publication, term paper or thesis, there are suitable templates and style templates for everything. The basic version for joint writing with co-authors is free of charge. You can find more information below.
The graphical user interface of word processing software is often crammed with menus and buttons for formatting what is written. The best example is the top dog "Word" from Microsoft. But the free Office alternatives and, last but not least, Apple's "Pages" are not much better - even if Pages can be reduced to the bare minimum.
Distraction-free offers aimed at authors usually offer even fewer visual stimuli, and that is exactly what SciFlow does. Only the most important buttons for formatting the text are displayed. In this way, specialist publications, term papers and theses can be written in a more concentrated manner. The concept is neither new nor innovative, but is supplemented by special additional offers.
SciFlow is a pad that can be shared online with co-authors. The basic functions can be used free of charge. Basically everyone can use the service, regardless of whether they work in research or not. Thanks to special functions, templates and templates, the offer is tailored above all to students, researchers, lecturers, universities and institutes.
There are, for example, manuscript templates such as ACS, APA, Chicago, Deutsche Zitierweise, IEEE, MLA and others. In addition, over 300 journal templates are offered for various specialist areas, from astronomy and biochemistry to business administration and computer science to engineering and materials science. Output in standard formats (.docx, .LaTeX, .pdf and .html) is of course also possible.
I cannot tell you the exact price for a SciFlow license at this point, as the costs result from the number of users and thus the infrastructure to be made available. However, there are three packages to choose from and which give you an idea of the SciFlow prices. The free package is of course free of charge:
|SciFlow Free||SciFlow Authoring Platform||SciFlow Publish|
