Taylor & Francis Partners With colviz and Begins Rolling Out Enhancements to PDF Versions of Journal Articles

From T&F:

Taylor & Francis Online announces a range of developments to enhance readers’ and researchers’ online reading experience.

The changes aim to take reading PDFs beyond a print-like experience by making the most of what the web has to offer.

They combine:

  • Interact , a reimagined PDF which is currently rolling out across Taylor & Francis’ journals;
  • Cleaner, clearer cover sheet;
  • Interactive tools to allow readers to annotate articles, quickly find referenced articles with clickable citations, and discover relevant content powered by colwiz.

Complementing these PDF enhancements, Taylor & Francis is partnering with colwiz to widen the trial of colwiz ’s interactive PDF to include all journals.

Annotated articles can also be saved to a personal library, ready to be recalled for later use on colwiz desktop, web and mobile apps without losing previously-made notes. To facilitate writing new articles, readers will be able to generate bibliographies in MS Word, Open Office, LaTeX and Google Docs using free colwiz reference management software.
