How to simplify writing a scientific article? The answer is SciFlow

5. 5. 2022

Dear users,

We are very pleased to announce that UPCE has the opportunity to trial access to the unique SciFlow tool from 11 May to 11 July 2022.

Sciflow Authoring Platform is an online text editor for authors of scientific texts, especially articles and theses. It can also be used to create other documents and greatly facilitates collaborative writing.

The biggest advantages include:

  • a large selection of scientific journal templates and citation styles
  • a continuous increase in the number of templates and styles based on user recommendations
  • thesis templates (subscribing institutions can have customized templates created)
  • co-authors can write and comment at the same time (incl. tracking changes and versioning)
  • easy iterative reformatting, simple insertion of tables, equations and special characters
  • exports to DOCX, PDF, HTML or JATS
  • spelling and grammar check in English and German
