Using digital publications in research – part one – by Robert O'Toole

I now almost exclusively use digital publications in my research, in the form of PDF files from journals and Kindle books from Amazon. This short video illustrates how I do this and the benefits it provides. My workflow is iPad based, although I do also sometimes use similar software on my desktop and laptop computers. It's all possible using other platforms. I will create a second video shortly, illustrating how I combine the Mendeley reference management system, Dropbox file storage and the iAnnotate PDF app.

This video is best viewed full screen.
