Issues in developing an online advisory system for text writers.

M. Steehouder, Carolus Jansen

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleAcademicpeer-review


An online advisory system is described which offers guidelines and recommendations for text writers. The system tries to meet two essential requirements: easy switching from the text processing software to the online advice, and optimal access which enables the user to find relevant materials as easy as possible. The authors describe some studies with prototypes of the system. An analysis of information-seeking behavior yields some fundamental issues to be investigated in order to improve the usefulness of the system in the future.
