Introduction to the Research Tools Mind Map

Nader Ale Ebrahim 1


With the increasing use of information and
communications technology (ICT), researchers are able to use computer
software tools to find, organise, manipulate, analyse, and share
relevant information. However, there are hundreds of such tools to
select from, for various research-related uses. I have collected over
700 tools that can help researchers do their work efficiently. It is
assembled as an interactive Web-based mind map, titled Research Tools,
which is updated periodically. Created using the MindMeister software
platform, Research Tools provides a convenient interface with zoom
in/out, screen drag, and other user-friendly features. Being a mind map,
Research Tools consists of a hierarchical set of nodes. It has four
main nodes: (1) Searching the literature, (2) Writing a paper, (3)
Targeting suitable journals, and (4) Enhancing visibility and impact,
and six auxiliary nodes. In the mind map, each parent node has several
child nodes associated with it, which can be accessed by clicking on the
plus (+) sign. Several free tools can be found in the child nodes. Some
paid tools are also included. The four main nodes are described below,
listing some tools as examples. In the mind map, a green tick sign
indicates my preference for some tools. Users can access the tools by
clicking on the arrow sign that appears next to the tool title.
