Overview Max Planck Authoring Platform

Writing for researchers

The SciFlow text editor has been developed with researchers in mind. Focus on your content - not formatting.

Writing with Co-Authors

SciFlow allows all co-authors to collaborate within one platform - without the e-mail and version chaos.

Most used templates

The platform will soon feature the top 100 journal templates used by Max Planck researchers.

Write, Cite & Comment together - in Real Time

SciFlow is an online text editor that was created to improve the writing of scientific documents. References can be imported from reference managers like Citavi, Endnote, Mendeley or Zotero.

Co-Authors can work on the same version of a document at the same time. Texts can be commented on and discussed directly in SciFlow.

You can invite your colleagues from Max Planck or peers from other institutions.

Format your document with just one click

The platform provides templates from the most used journals of Max Planck researchers.

Find a template and start writing in the SciFlow App. You can export the document in the desired format with just one click.

Requests and suggestions for more Templates can be sent to the SciFlow team. More and more Templates are being added.
