Research Tools for Research Cycle: From SEARCH to DISSEMINATION

Nader Ale Ebrahim
With the increasing usage of information and communications technology (ICT), researchers are able to use computer software/tools to find, organize, manipulate, analyze, and share relevant information. However, there are hundreds of such tools to select from, for various research-related uses. I have collected over 700 “Research Tools” that can help researchers do their work efficiently. “Research Tools” consists of a hierarchical set of nodes. It has four main nodes: (1) Searching the literature, (2) Writing...
