Do you ever get that feeling that you would like to have a magic spell to organize all your data?

And once it is organized, wouldn’t it be magnificent if there would be a software that could put together all relevant data from your projects, add some new references and present you with a manuscript draft you can build upon?

This is where sciNote Manuscript Writer add-on comes in. It uses artificial intelligence to prepare a draft of your scientific manuscript based on your data, saving you time and energy to prepare manuscripts to publish.

Within each task, you can write notes, add text, checklists, pictures, tables and upload different types of files. Tasks can be used to define each step of a protocol in great detail, what needs to be done and how (picture below). That is basically all you need to know to start.

This is where the magic happens

Once your data is nicely organized in sciNote, Manuscript Writer can do its job!

Based on the data you have in sciNote, it will generate a draft of your manuscript.

Based on the data you have in SciNote, it will generate a draft of your manuscript  containing several versions of the Introduction, Materials and Methods, Results and References. All you have to do is to follow these three easy steps:

  1. Add DOI numbers of open access articles available in PubMed Central.
  2. Add relevant keywords.
  3. Chose a project and select one or more experiments you want to include in the manuscript (as Materials & Methods and Results part of the draft).
