litw3 is a web-based literature administration system designed for literature-related data entry in workgroups, independent of time or location.
Important aspects of litw3 are its user friendly operating system and its uncomplicated data entry and search (standard search) facilities. The use of freely definable input masks and output masks (e.g. for journal articles or for archival documents) enhances litw3's clear structure and helps avoid errors.
Data recurring in more than one record can be set as default values.
litw3 facilitates detailed data entry by offering the user a large number of search fields for data input. The advanced search allows the user to perform complex searches by using all Boolean operators.
litw3's registration process is designed to allow differentiated levels of access to the system (e.g. as guest, normal, advanced or administrator)
The author and keyword index offers a "find and replace" function, thus avoiding the time-consuming manual correction of individual records.
The field headings can be changed according to the requirements of the individual user.
A user-friendly module can be used to import records that have been compiled with similar programs. (ASCII and UTF-8 with freely positioned field definers)
All features of the database system are fully documented in the help index and an editable online support feature further assists users to produce complete and coherent records.
Users can already release individual records for publicly accessible research purposes whilst they compile their literature database. Released records can be viewed in a shortened or full-length form. An XML export is also available. The work on a multilanguage version is in progress.
litw3 can be used with all servers that can read PHP.
