Acclaimed cloud-based document management platform now available  free to individual researchers

ProQuest’s powerful collaboration and document management tool, Flow™, is now accessible free for researchers -- including those in institutions that don’t subscribe to the service. Flow leverages a decade of experience with the RefWorks® suite of tools, resulting in a unique service that manages researcher workflows while integrating document management and sharing with citation data. This enables users to discover and manage content, store and organize documents, and through integration with Microsoft® Word, write papers, supported with instant bibliographies and annotation. Plus, Flow’s social capabilities allow simple document sharing.

Like RefWorks, Flow is designed to keep libraries at the hub of university research. Subscribing libraries can tap into usage data, revealing patterns that help them understand what their users are researching and which resources are most useful to them. Broadening access to Flow via free individual accounts is expected to yield richer analytics and content usage data.
