We are always looking for contributors. Do you know of a trick / tool / application that:

  • could make the life of a young researcher easier?
  • has already helped you in your own research?

Yes? We would like to invite you to contribute to this blog!

How? It is easy. We are looking for any contribution that discusses IT-based ways of doing research. This is very broad: it ranges from the use of online forums for discussing research results to the use of Google for searching for literature, and from online reference managers to downloadable presentation software.

What are the guidelines? The core aim of SHARE-IT is to provide critical discussions of online tricks and tools in an accessible manner. Preferably, articles should therefore:

  • be short (up to 500 words)
  • use no jargon
  • describe both benefits and drawbacks of the tool and trick
  • include an example from your own research practice

Please do not feel constrained by these guidelines. We encourage innovative approaches, for instance using screenshots and images for explaining the tool, or comparisons of several tools with similar functions.

We are looking forward to hear from you!

For more information, you can also just send us a message via this form:

We will then contact you , in order to discuss some more details on how you can share your experience and help fellow researchers.
