WizFolio Releases Latest Iteration of WizAdd Webscrapper

WizFolio is pleased to announce its latest iteration of WizAdd, an innovative webscrapper which allows the abstraction of virtually any kind of information from any webpage.

Logan, UT, September 04, 2009 --(PR.com)-- WizFolio’s feature, WizAdd, can directly import references from publishers’ databases and proprietary databases including Engineering Village, IEEExplore, JSTOR, ProQuest, Pubmed, Scopus, Amazon Books etc. It can import bibliographic data directly into WizFolio account from the top 200 scientific publishers covering over 50,000 journals.

Recognizing the growing importance and prevalence of alternative information sources other than journal publications, WizAdd can be used to collect patents, videos and even web snippets. Now instead of waiting for publications to be released, which may be several months old from the time of conception to the time of release, WizAdd allows WizFolio users to collect and manage web snippets of the latest news and thus keep track of the state of the art.

WizAdd is just part of the suite of tools offered by WizFolio. WizFolio includes a Locate PDF engine which allows users to find the full-text PDF versions of their WizAdded collections with just one-click. An innovative sharing system allows users to share their entire collection easily with their friends and colleagues.

“WizAdd is the state of the art bookmarklet which allows users to grab information off any webpage,” explains WizFolio CEO, Dr Casey Chan. “The uses are endless – Researchers can use it to collect bibliographic data from publishers, engineers can WizAdd patents, and you can even manage your videos as an online library.”
