Abstract

The development of integrated software programs should assist researcher-writers in completing more routine duties such as bibliographic editing. In addition, some programs also help researcher-writers with the analysis and synthesis of search results. Such programs can save time and result in new discoveries. Part 1 of this exploration, published in the last issue of this journal, covered iCyte®, Mendeley™, Papers, PDF Stacks, PubGet Paper-Plane™, WizFolio, and Zotero™. 1 Part 2, published here, covers a robust and highly integrated product, QUOSA™, including an in-depth product performance evaluation. Questions considered in this column are: What types of programs exist to enhance the productivity of researcher-writers? What are their purposes? How do these programs operate? Do they always behave as promised?.
