The origin

The desire for an entirely new reference management tool arose while writing the "State of the Art" chapter of a doctoral thesis. Since autumn 2014 LitVis is on its way to revolutionize the use of scientific literature. Driven by the own painful experiences with existing reference management software, there has been done a lot of hard work to create a new and revolutionary reference management software that goes far beyond today's reference management tools. The goal is to develop a highly graphical and easy to use reference management tool. By visualizing the literature network in a clear and user friendly way in combination with a simple navigation, extensive editing functions and many import and export capabilities LitVis wants to make the lives of students, scientists, researchers, archivists and journalists easier. LitVis wants to help libraries, universities, archives and the press to get faster and better reseach results. LitVis is a visual reference management tool for all people and institutions who work with literature, visual or audio material. With LitVis you will experience a new and visual way of managing literature.
