Writing aids

When writing, it can be useful to see how a word or phrase has been used by other authors. The tools on this page provide “context glossaries” for that purpose.

Springer Exemplar
This online service shows the context of a given word or phrase as it appears in articles published by Springer journals.
Adelaide Text Analysis Tool (AdTAT)
AdTAT is a personalised writing tool created to help international researchers writing in English. Each user builds their own ‘corpus’ from about 20 scholarly articles directly relevant to their thesis topic. The user can then do tailored ‘keyword in context’ searches of their corpus to quickly learn how to use the English words and phrases they need to use in their thesis.
