So, LinkMiner lets me research inside Microsoft Word
Yes, LinkMiner is the Microsoft Word add-in which does exactly that. However, when using LinkMiner to perform research inside Microsoft Word, the key benefit is speed.
At the click of a button, LinkMiner scans your Word document for any external links and resources referenced. Particularly for longer documents, this can save hours. Once scanned, the links appear on a special pane alongside your document.
From the pane, you can see which links occur where and how many times. Click on a link and view it alongside your document, or open it in a browser.
It extracts links, what else?
Perform a desktop Google search from the pane. View your research alongside your document. Now you can multitask effectively and avoid the time loss from switching between different tasks (see here).
So what’s speedy about it?
See how prominent a link is in your document. This allows you to understand what’s key in your document. You can then concentrate all your attention on the key resources.
In focusing on what’s likely to be key, you can avoid distractions, for example from links which look enticing, but lead you away from your research goals.
Getting to key links quickly is what can make the difference between a great piece of work and one which was hurried and lacked focus. Not being able to quickly assess the value of references within a document can means hours of work understanding a document. With LinkMiner, research in Microsoft Word documents can be reduced to just minutes.
All this puts you in the best position to get the results you need, easily.
