More of a question of what to use for the creation of my coming dissertation

21 11 2013

I have always struggled using Microsoft Word when writing longer research material. Trying to use Word to do so means that I have to use other tools for outlining, brainstorming, etcetera, so I decided to look outwards to see what is there. I have found some unique programs like Scrivener from Literature and Latte (http://www.literatureandlatte.com) and also some other programs that seem to have had their start on the Mac platform. I have always wanted to be one of the ‘cool’ kids with the Mac Book Pro’s running multiple OSes, and I guess during this Doctoral program I am going to have to breakdown and purchase one. Anyone else have any good ideas for software to use in the writing of a dissertation?
