Does SmartCite support collaboration?

Absolutely! Whenever you import references into a manuscript you are writing, you are actually saving the article’s information within the Microsoft Word document itself. This means that when you e-mail this document to another computer (whether it be putting it up on the cloud for later use at home, or sending to a colleague to contribute to) that all the relevant citation data will still be available in the document.

If your colleagues are interested in editing the citation data you’ve included or adding additional citations to your paper’s bibliography, they will need to use ReadCube’s citation tool. Given that ReadCube’s citation tool is free however, it’s a simple matter to download the app from our website, add the needed references into a the library, and start collaborating! This process works back and forth seamlessly, so feel free to add citations, save the document, send it, and repeat!
