Abstract

This study introduces eJournalPlus, a tabletPC based reading support software. The goal is to assist the user in reading e-documents with accurate comprehension and critical attitude to improve his/her critical reading skills. In the software, the user can underline critical words and phrases in e-documents, depict the concept maps, and edit the report within the interface. Moreover, the special features allow the user to cite underlined words into the knowledge map directly and likewise, into the report. An additional feature allows the collaboration with eJournalPlus Server, which has several functions for downloading and uploading files. This paper describes the contributors’ motivation for this project and provides details on the software.
