It's not every day that you meet entrepreneurs who can use the words "life savings" and "startup" in the same sentence and still laugh about it. But the guys from Citelighter--Saad Alam (CEO), Lee Jokl (COO), and Kevin West (Director of Marketing and Partnerships)--stay upbeat and flexible as they maneuver through the twists and turns of the startup life.
Citelighter Launches PDF Capture & Storage Function - Turns Web Tool Into a Fully Functional Research Repository
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE January 13, 2013 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 release date of January 14th, 2013, Citelighter will now allow users of its platform to capture content from PDF documents, as well as store and capture information from offline PDF documents in their personal accounts.
When it comes to conducting research for papers, homework assignments, etc., students primarily turn to the Web for information despite its inherent academic dangers. Naturally, with the diversity of content out there, keeping track of pertinent links and bibliographical data is difficult when jumping from source to source.
Clipping/bookmarking startup Citelighter is introducing a pro version of its service today that academics and anyone who does long-form written research will want to pay attention to. Citelighter’s free version lets you save snippets of information from different websites while keeping a record of where it came from for future reference. You can then organize the auto-cited information into specific topics or share it with a community.
Citelighter is worth checking out on its own accord, but there’s news that Edudemic has been proud to break as of this minute: Citelighter has partnered with Cengage Learning (the force behind the Questia research library) to give users the option of creating a Pro account to access the Questia library of articles to power your research. This gives Pro users access to millions of articles (newspapers, magazines, peer reviewed journals, transcripts, reference materials, etc).
Citelighter Launches Premium Product to Streamline Research for Students; Partnership with Questia Enables Access to Vast Content Archive
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.
Citelighter attempts to solve this conundrum by giving students a note-collecting toolbar that sticks with them as they navigate the web. After downloading a free Firefox plugin, students can highlight any text on any web page and click a "capture" button to save it in a virtual notebook. When it's time to write, they can visit it to view all of their highlights from across the web, reorder them and add comments to create an outline. The app automatically puts together a citation page.
The New York City educational tech startup Citelighter, cofounded by Saad Alam and Lee Jokl in 2010, has been testing their product in closed beta since May. It's a web research tool that grabs highlighted text from sites and stores it in an online account, complete with detailed citation info, for later use in term papers. For now, Citelighter is a free plug-in for the Firefox browser, but Chrome and Safari versions are also in the works.
