Note-taking and Information Management for Humanities & Social Sciences Research: Tools, Techniques, Tips: the Future

Interoperability

Technology changes quickly, incrementally. It's likely that we'll be doing things differently on different kinds of devices in five years. Whatever tools you decide to use today, make sure you'll be able to move materials from one system to another tomorrow. 

Look for import and export functions. That means if something better comes along or your needs change, you'll be able to move notes and materials from one system to another relatively painlessly and automatically with one click. 

Avoid software without these functions.
