Interact with what you’re reading: discover the colwiz interactive PDF reader on Taylor & Francis Online

Reading a research article is far from a passive experience. Researchers mark sections of text, write critical comments, or notes to themselves on printed copies, which can be lost, and not easily shared. Following the latest Taylor & Francis Online site release, you can now annotate PDF documents as you read them with the colwiz Interactive PDF Reader* (iPDF).

Using a series of interactive tools, you can highlight text, write notes, and draw directly on articles — just as with a printed copy. There are two new buttons on Taylor & Francis Online to enable the features of colwiz: “View & annotate PDF” and “Add to colwiz Library”.

By saving your annotated iPDF in your personal colwiz library, you will not have to worry about where you placed your notes again.

You can also elect to register for an account with colwiz and access a number of additional features including the full features of colwiz Library and colwiz Drive, a plug-in for writing and citing, and the ability to share your iPDF with other members.

“Taylor & Francis is delighted to implement the colwiz interactive PDF reader on Our aim is to support readers and researchers by enhancing the reading and annotation functionality of PDFs, providing reference management tools, and aiding effective collaboration,” says Genevieve Early, Digital Products Director at Taylor & Francis.

Taylor & Francis has implemented the colwiz iPDF reader as a pilot on a selection of 40 journal titles. For more information, visit
