Word “Researcher”

One of the new ‘features’ that will be available in Office 2016 — although it says only when you have an Office 365 subscription — is Word Researcher.

This tool uses Bing to go out and help you find information on a paper you are writing.

The cool part is that it allows you to add citations to your text. There isn’t overt information on the page, so I’m not sure if it allows for APA / MLA / etc style… I guess I should watch the video.

The good new/bad news is that you only have to highlight text from a web page and it will add it to the document… not that it wasn’t already easy enough to copy/paste from a web site already!

It purports: Researcher uses Bing to pull in the appropriate content from the web and provide structured, safe and credible information. YMMV

Going to be worth your while to check it out!
