Tools for working with text

Each semester students create dozens of materials – from current control to the bulk projects and dissertations. However, not all use special programs that can facilitate the writing process and significantly improve the result.
Step 1. Collect information

The creation of the text begins not when you open a blank file in a text editor, but much earlier – during the harvesting literature. We already wrote about creating the working library of the student using bibliographic software. They will help not only to systematize the materials you plan to use, but also automatically generate links to them in the text and create a bibliography in the proper format. The only thing you need to do is to save the books and articles in bbiomedsci. Then your library will quickly be replenished.

In addition, almost all bbiomedsci allow you to attach to books and articles quotes. Reading the text, just highlight the passage you want, and it will be recorded on a separate card. But if you insert thus created quotation in your text, it will automatically have a link to the source.

Step 2. The planned structure

It’s hard to say what happens earlier: finding and processing literature, or the formation of the structure and work plan. In practice, these 2 processes usually occur simultaneously.

Tools for building tree-like structures have some bibliographic managers, which allow you to export the plan into a text editor in the form of headings and sub-headings of the future of the text.

Effective is also planning the structure of the text in programs for mindmapping – for example, XMind, FreeMind or Mindmeister, each of which has a free basic version. The generated structure can be exported to a text editor with a single click.

Step 3. Create the text

If you have carefully examined the structure of the text, has kept the output of books, articles and quotes from them, remains the most simple – to collect these drafts in plain text.

So, we import the material structure to a text file and write under each heading and subheading a few sentences to explain the content of the section. Insert quotes that are saved in bllomington, in the right places.

Added “qualification elements that must contain each of the academic text: purpose, objective, object, subject, methods and the like. Automatically generated work plan with headings (this feature have all text editors). At the end of the text supplemented by a list of references with bblondee.

The first draft is ready! Please note, many of the works you have performed in previous phases, therefore, now remains to gather experience into a coherent whole. It’s easier than writing everything from scratch. Most likely, your text will be supplemented with details and the General meaning will remain fixed.



Step 4. Improve the result

Now comes the time to focus on language work. Start by verifying its uniqueness. Among the most famous “anti-plagiarism software-it Plagiatus Advego and eTXT Antiplagiat. Their interfaces are intuitive, we need only to remember that the acceptable level of uniqueness of the text is about 85% of the actual author of the content. Correct citation the list of used literature is not considered plagiarism.

You can now begin deep checking spelling and stylistics. The software market for analysis of Russian texts is being developed, but if you write in Russian, there are really plenty to choose from. One of the most powerful tools Russian free resource “Orogramme.ru”, which not only checks grammar and punctuation, but also will reveal the tautology (the use of multiple similar or cognate words), a violation of euphony and other common errors. Simplified tools spelling exist on many sites, for example, at the same Advego, where, incidentally, there is a possibility of checking of Russian texts. But they are all inferior to the “Morphograms” and actually have more features than the standard spellchecker MS Word.

After this correction are quite high-quality text, which is not exactly the impression written in haste. But how it is perceived by the reader? Is it easy to read? To answer these questions will help program for semantic optimization of texts.

One of the weak points of most authors-beginners is the saturation of text “stop words”. These are empty words like “all”, “therefore”, “as you know”, “actually”, “so” and a dozen others. For detection and removal of established on-line resource “of Stop-words.no.” Similar functions are also complete solutions, including free “Advego” (online resource) and the local program “Textus Pro” who perceive Ukrainian texts.

Another indicator is the high frequency of the use of the same words. It is clear that the work on the banking account, the word “banks”, “Finance” and “accounting” will be encountered more often than others. One of the most convenient tools to keep track of frequently used words is the already mentioned “Textus Pro”, and the synonyms of such words will offer dictionaries of synonyms Synonymonline.ru Synonymous and others.

Textus Pro: grey highlighted “stop words,” it is frequent repetition.

In the considered complex programs form a kind of “gentleman’s kit” of a novice author who will help you learn how easy it is to create quality texts.
