End-to-End Mobile Research: Using Tablet Computing to Facilitate an Untethered and Paperless Research Process

Wednesday, March 14 | 2:50PM–3:40PM | West Prefunction
Session Type: NC12
Tablets, especially iPads, are up-and-coming devices in higher education and they are gaining much acceptance among faculty and students. The research process, however, can still be described as being tethered to a desk, either in an office or at the library. In this poster session we aim to explore the ways in which the research process, from inception to final journal submission, can be undertaken on a mobile device like an iPad. The aim is to help untether the researcher from the current desktop-based model that poses some location and convenience constraints on the research process.
