ProQuest Launches RefWorks Flow

ProQuest is launching a new collaboration platform for research materials called RefWorks Flow. This cloud-based resource takes what researchers love about RefWorks to a new level by supporting team environments—enabling easy document sharing—and mobile. Flow was created to provide a better solution for the changing workflow of researchers, who are increasingly working in team environments and want seamless access to full-text documents, rather than citations alone.

Built with user experience as its primary development driver, Flow features an intuitive interface that needs little training to use and simplifies the management of research materials. It enables users, whether they’re students or scholars, to organize full-text documents and references, keeping them together, accessible, and usable for a variety of needs—team collaboration, class reading scenarios, etc. Users can save webpage content and metadata, create collections to organize documents and citations, and upload PDF and Office documents. Once saved to the cloud, these documents can be read, highlighted, and annotated on multiple devices. Flow has built-in recognition of documents and citations so users don’t have to enter metadata manually.

Flow is also designed to be easy for institutions to use. A cloud-based service, it requires no installation or updates. Flow is compatible with all modern web browsers on computers, laptops, tablets, and smartphones.
