Scientific literature is a critical component to virtually all aspects of a life science enterprise, including Medical Affairs, Pharmacovigilance, and R&D. However, the process of curating and sharing literature can lead to significant challenges in organizing content, facilitating collaboration, and copyright compliance.
In many cases, reference management tools are used to manage the large amounts of literature that accumulate over time. While these tools are helpful for developing bibliographies, a more robust approach to managing literature should be considered in order to effectively collaborate and centralize information.
Especially in the remote-working era, a proper method of literature management can benefit your entire organization. Learn how best practices in literature management can keep you and your colleagues up to date on new developments, support collaboration, enable workflows and more.
