Simplify writing a scientific paper with SciFlow

26. 5. 2022

Dear users,

Until 11 July 2022, you have the opportunity to take advantage of trial access to the unique tool:SciFlow .

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

Among its greatest advantages are:

  • a large selection of scientific journal templates and citation styles and a continuous increase in the number of templates based on user recommendations (now also the Czech version of the ISO 690 citation standard)
  • thesis templates (subscribing institutions can have customized templates created)
  • co-authors can write and comment at the same time (tracking changes and versioning is a matter of course)
  • easy re-reformatting, simple insertion of tables, equations and special characters
  • pre-existing connection to Mendeley and Zotero citation managers
  • exports to DOCX, PDF, HTML or JATS
  • spelling and grammar check in English and German

To access SciFlow, use the university email address and link: https://www.sciflow.net/upce

If you are missing a template, citation style, or have any other comments in SciFlow, please contact the developers at mail@sciflow.net. They are very helpful. We are the first university in the country to set up a trial approach and have a unique opportunity to influence SciFlow development. Take advantage of it!

* Frequently asked question: Is SciFlow free? Answer: Within SciFlow Free, you can collaboratively write and annotate, use journal templates, basic spell check in English and German, save images, and link the service to a citation manager. Additional features are available in the paid versions of SciFlow Groups and SciFlow Campus.
