Digital tools have been built to help researchers explore the millions of available research papers on this date. Search engines help researchers locate papers easily and keep the literature updated. The visualization methods in Article improve researchers’ reading experience.
For most researchers it is already unavoidable to handle huge data sets and software code. Efficient data and code storage and sharing tools were created. Such methods became even more important as the standard and necessity of most funding agencies was data sharing and code sharing.
Writing instruments conform to researchers’ needs. And as research is increasingly dependent on collaborations across laboratories and continents, collaborative writing tools enable researchers to write their manuscripts, while closely monitoring the changes made by other researchers.
Open Access platforms offer the ability to freely visualize published work in an alternative publication model. Researchers may also increase their work visibility by increasing their handwritings in paper repositories. Articles are expected to be more interactive in addition to being more accessible. A set of tools is grouped to enable researchers to add additional features such as executable code. In the Journal Reviews and Advisers, researchers can further find tools that help them choose from thousands of journals.
New instruments change the way research is measured, both in terms of the scientific merit of publications and the researchers’ overall achievements. Find in the peer review a collection of tools, which by bypass journals and editors change the peer review system into a more open and productive process.
