Australian Government increases research funding

In November 2013, the Hon. C. Pyne, Minister for Education, announced that the government “will deliver a clear strategy, one that lays out a path to growing a world class education and research industry, that realises our economic potential, reduces barriers and frees the sector to be more productive and globally competitive.” He further announced an increase in funding of A$522m (1177 projects) for the research and innovation sector.

ComWriter is a writing tool that directly supports productivity within the research sector.

The first Uni assignment produced by ComWriter submitted!

Today, one of our beta-testers (Rachel) was the first person to write and produce her University assignment (Design, University of Technology Sydney) using ComWriter! Congratulations Rachel, we hope you get a High Distinction.

Rachel said “I can use comwriter when I am at the library to add my resources, and then go home and write my essay, and they’ll all be there, easy as!” After writing her essay, Rachel used the Harvard style to produce her assignment, and to her delight “All my references are correct, except for one extra comma, but that probably means I forgot to enter some data!” She added, “A whole level of stress was removed by not having to worry about the references and spacing and stuff.”

Introducing Smart Lists

A smart list is an automatically generated listing. Examples include: a table of contents, a list of images (figures, tables, etc.), a reference list (cited resources, non-cited resources or bibliography), or an endnote listing (instead of footnotes). In the writing editor simply Add Smart list and you never have to worry about updating it (ComWriter does it for you). When you export your writing project to a PDF, ComWriter creates the listing Automatically in the location where you placed the smart list, and will format it according to the Style you selected…now that is SMART!
