Remarq (from RedLink)

RedLink has announced the latest release of Remarq, which includes three levels of group collaboration:

  • Private Groups – only those invited by the host are aware of the group and can participate;
  • Protected Groups – publishers can create these groups, which anyone can find and request to join; and
  • Public Groups – these groups are open to anyone at any time.

Readers, authors, editors, and publishers all have the opportunity to create group conversations and invite members for research, classroom teaching, or other collaborative projects.  Users can share annotations, comments, images, links, and files, and discuss articles with other group members.

Remarq is a collaboration tool supporting highlighting, private notes, commenting, and article sharing, all on the publisher’s site and utilising the version of record.  Remarq aims to provide a powerful and smoothly integrated set of tools that support authors, editors, and users.

‘Our Groups functionality brings Remarq to another level for scholarly collaboration,’ said Kent Anderson, RedLink’s CEO. ‘From research topics to classrooms to journal clubs, the conversations in Groups will make it easier for researchers, students, publishers, editors, and readers to actively engage with the literature, opening up new avenues and ideas.’
