Students and academics
Study faster, connect ideas across sources, write more insightful reports, and take more meaningful notes with LiquidText.
Whether you’re studying for a test or writing a journal article, LiquidText saves you time. It helps you gather and focus on the most important information, connect it to its context, and extend it with your own ideas.
With LiquidText, all the knowledge in all your books and papers is suddenly freed so you can arrange it according to your needs but without ever losing the original context.
Eoin Mac Réamoinn, Oxford University
Eoin is a biomedical researcher at Oxford, he uses LiquidText to read and review the latest academic papers in his field. This kind of review meant commenting and annotating, and for Eoin, that used to mean lots of print outs, and lots of wasted paper.
LiquidText changed that; the workspace gave him “an endless space to write notes but in an organized way,” that he can then link to the document text using an InkLink.
The result is better than paper: “It has allowed me to do the things I did before, but much better. It has made an improvement… I love that I can have my notes side by side with the original document. It’s not cluttered.”
Carl Webb, mental health nurse
After years of study, Carl just graduated with his degree as a mental health nurse; he used LiquidText for the research to write essays for his nursing classes. The essays had to consider many interrelated perspectives on a topic, from government reports, to academic papers.
Carl’s workflow was tedious, highlighting PDFs one at a time and looking for connections.
LiquidText changed that, let Carl open all the documents he needed, and pull related bits together from completely different documents in the workspace, along with his own thoughts. Carl says LiquidText saved him time, but more, “it gave me a chance to better analyze the information I was looking for.”
The Paperless Student
More educators showing how they use LiquidText
Whether in contract drafting or review, trial prep or discovery, LiquidText helps you make connections others miss. We make it easy to connect facts across numerous sources and weave them into a coherent narrative without ever losing sight of the original context.
And when fractions of a second count, LiquidText gives you the efficient, intuitive tools to find those facts in real time. This is why Law 360 said, “the world changed with LiquidText.”
Roger Harper, Lawyer (Barrister)
Roger is a lawyer (barrister) who focuses on family and financial cases. He uses LiquidText to take a collection of evidence documents, summarize them, digest them, and prepare a mind map to take to the trial. But during a trial, Roger needs to get to documents as fast as possible, and here LiquidText shined: “I can get to documents probably faster than the people using paper.”
Roger navigates so quickly using LiquidText’s InkLinks; when he first reads the documents, he draws InkLink lines of different colors to create connections within and between documents.
The impact for him is, “being able to find a particular page and cross reference it to the other relevant docs faster than people using paper is a competitive advantage.”.
SB is an in-house attorney specializing in bankruptcy, and general corporate law. He uses LiquidText to review and take notes on documents in preparation for meetings.
But SB works with long documents where a small handful of critical points are hidden in a mountain of irrelevant content. SB needs to separate and organize the important information out so he can find it quickly at meetings.
For this, he uses two strategies. First, using LiquidText’s excerpts, he gathers the most essential parts of his documents together, organizes them, and combines them with his own comments in the LiquidText workspace. Second, he uses HighlightView to see the most important parts of his documents together, with context.
He concludes that LiquidText “helps me to concentrate on the essential, relevant parts of documents… So I'm faster with that, and at the same time, I think I can work more thoroughly because I don't miss parts.”
With numerous studies addressing even the narrowest topics, applying the latest research in clinic can be daunting. LiquidText can help shrink that gap by giving you a faster, simpler way to integrate the essential elements of different research papers and consider them together, without losing their original contexts.
LiquidText is designed to help you see more connections in the literature, and develop conclusions faster.
Eric Goldberg, MD, FACP, Clinical Ass’t Prof., Internal Medicine Associates, NYU Langone Med. Center
Eric is a clinical ass’t professor and practicing physician. He uses LiquidText to review the latest research papers so he can apply the findings and recommendations in-clinic with his patients. A single medical topic can have numerous relevant articles and and web sources, each with their own findings and recommendations. This used to mean multiple apps, notebooks and physical paper printouts.
LiquidText lets Eric change that. LiquidText combines a document view with a workspace, letting Eric bring all his research together into one place, but without losing the original document context. It even lets him make connections across documents.
If you work with complex systems, LiquidText can save you time. First, we help you stay at the cutting edge of your field with tools to support efficient learning and connected, meaningful notes that never lose their context.
Second, whether you’re building a system or analyzing a failure, we help you navigate and connect interrelated spec sheets, process documents, and QA reports to gather and correlate the facts you need.
S.W., Systems Safety Engineer
S.W. is a systems safety engineer, and uses LiquidText to figure out why complex systems in aviation and healthcare fail so he can recommend ways to make them safer for people. S.W. gathers and connects facts from many different sources to find the origin of a failure.
However, S.W. had a problem: most of the software for this are PC apps with poor UIs. With LiquidText, he said, “The tech doesn’t get in the way of the task. Being able to see two places at once, is great, but being able to connect things in the workspace is brilliant.” Now S.W. has released YouTube videos teaching this type of analysis using LiquidText.
Whether in accounting or improving business processes, LiquidText helps consultants communicate more clearly with clients. LiquidText helps you distill the vast bodies of relevant knowledge down to the essential, and
organize it into the form your project requires—all without ever losing the original sources and context your client expects.
John Hanacek, Design and business consultant
John is a design and business consultant, he uses LiquidText to gather information on a topic, distill it down, and present “the meat” to his clients. He finds that seemingly unrelated ideas are often related—from physics to biology to design. So he needs a tool that’s flexible, and doesn’t force him to decide in advance how his varied, unstructured research should be organized.
LiquidText provides this flexibility, from its unstructured workspace to its freehand excerpts, it does not “tell him what to do with content.” LiquidText lets John read deeper and communicate faster, “I’m getting more depth out of [my research], and I’m able to more quickly communicate that depth.”
