NY, NY (PRWEB) September 18, 2012
Citelighter, the company responsible for the intuitive and easy-to-use fully automated research and citation tool, has released its newest educational product offering aimed at making research more credible, efficient, and productive.
With a scheduled release of September 17, 2012, Citelighter Pro allows users to access a repository of paid content—millions of credible academic articles from journals, magazines, newspapers, and transcripts, from more than 6,500 dating publications back over 25 years—for only $10 a month, directly from Citelighter. The Pro version of the product can also make recommendations to relevant premium content based on a user’s research patterns. Premium content will be displayed on Knowledge Cards, which are collections of specific facts curated by Knowledge Experts, and organized by topic.
The new service is a result of Citelighter’s recent partnership with Cengage Learning, a leading provider of innovative teaching, learning and research solutions for the academic, professional and library markets worldwide, and its premier online research and paper writing resource, Questia. Questia, with its expansive library of books, academic journals, and magazine and newspaper articles, has helped students find and cite high-quality scholarly research since its founding in 1998. The integration of Citelighter with Questia will further help students with their research tasks by allowing them to easily tap into collections of relevant, authoritative resources directly from Questia.
“We’re thrilled to start offering Citelighter users premium content on our intuitive research platform directly from a world renowned partner,” said Citelighter CEO Saad Alam. “This move makes research a snappier and more natural process for students—we’re replacing the cumbersome method of back-and-forth multi-tab browsing and eliminating the necessity for multiple log-ins with one simple, integrated experience.”
“Questia has long had a large and loyal student user community and the addition of the innovative CiteLighter tool is sure to expand this further,” said John Barnes, Cengage Learning’s EVP of Consumer Markets. “This new integrated service will provide students with an even easier way to access and cite the scholarly sources within Questia, the Web’s best online tool for researching, organizing and writing high-quality papers.”
In preparation for launching Pro, Citelighter recently added plug-in support for two popular internet browsers, Google Chrome and Apple Safari; the plug-in was previously available only for Mozilla Firefox. In the coming months Citelighter will also be launching the ability to capture content from PDFs, which allows users to expand their use in professional research databases.
Citelighter is an academic research platform that allows students to save, organize, and automatically cite information on the web, and then store these facts privately or aggregate them by topic to be shared with the community. Citelighter launched in September 2011 and is used by students in over more than 1,400 schools in 50 countries.
