MatchWare Releases NoteControl, Innovative Software to Simplify Research and Create a Bibliography
With its powerful capture tool bar, integration with WorldCat.org and cutting edge Microsoft Word export, MatchWare brings ease to writing research papers with their innovative research and citation software, NoteControl.
Today MatchWare ( www.matchware.com ) announces the release of NoteControl, an innovative research and citation software that is changing the way research papers are written. NoteControl assists users in the collection and organization of research along with the ability to manage citations and dynamically create research papers and bibliographies. Ulrik Merrild, MatchWare's CEO, explains "NoteControl simplifies how research projects are done. Whether you are writing a research paper or a book, NoteControl makes it easy to collect and manage the information you need."
From the collection of information to the process of formatting a research paper, NoteControl simplifies the research process entirely. With NoteControl's capture tool bar users can quickly collect the information they need from websites, document files, PDF's and more. The captured information is automatically stored as notes in the NoteControl inbox. From there, users can organize the information into main folders, sub-folders or by using tags, making it easy for users to find the notes they need.
Users can enhance their project by adding their own text, sound, or video notes and even collaborate on NoteControl projects by granting access to other users.
NoteControl provides users with free access to the world's largest online source catalogue, WorldCat.org. Users can search the WorldCat database through NoteControl, choosing from more than 1.5 billion documented sources to add to their NoteControl project. Sources can be added from WorldCat, or by the manual entry mode.
Brian S. Friedlander, Ph.D, school psychologist and assistive technology expert states, "As students and professionals begin to utilize more and more Internet resources, they will find NoteControl is an invaluable tool to take charge and organize their research for use in projects and presentations."
NoteControl's powerful integration with Microsoft Word allows users to easily convert their NoteControl project into a professional MS Word document complete with formatted section headings and even a bibliography section. The folders in NoteControl become the sections of the MS Word document. All captured notes stored in the NoteControl folders become content for the respective sections of the MS Word document. When exporting to MS Word, users can select from APA , MLA , Chicago , and Harvard writing/citation styles, allowing NoteControl to dynamically format the document headings and indentations, as well as create the bibliography according to the chosen style.
With seamless integration to MindView, MatchWare's award-winning mind mapping software, NoteControl's folder structure can be exported as a mind map, where the folders become the branches of the mind map. All captured notes stored in the folders become branch attachments in the mind map. This visual representation allows NoteControl users to further conceptualize and absorb the project at hand.
NoteControl provides students and professionals with the chance to enjoy the research process by providing valuable tools that streamline the way in which research is collected, organized, and presented. As a robust tool that brings simplicity to an otherwise dreaded task, NoteControl is revolutionizing the way research is perceived and performed.
