With the QUOSA literature management tool being discontinued in June 2023, many organizations and businesses are having to consider alternatives to manage their literature collection effectively. 

While this transition from one product to another can be a daunting prospect, especially if the first product had been deeply ingrained in company processes for a long time, it’s necessary in order to ensure you are getting the most out of your workflows. 

Fortunately, changing literature management solutions doesn’t have to be difficult. 

Article Galaxy and its NEW References solution is the perfect replacement for QUOSA literature management software.

But our new reference management tool, Article Galaxy References, helps you organize literature, check article-level permissions, annotate articles, and collaborate across your organization using shared folders.

Don’t Miss a Beat with Article Galaxy Platform Suite 

As you research alternative solutions and identify the best fit for your organization’s unique needs, there are a few essential components to consider to avoid disrupting your team and their workflows:  

Maximize Accessibility to Content 

An enterprise-wide literature management system can make all the difference for an organization. Instead of each department operating as a silo and buying, storing and using content independently, a central platform ensures that everyone has permission-based access across the entire business. Not only does it facilitate and promote collaboration, but it also grants you crucial insight into which resources are in use throughout the company and all associated costs, as well as allow for more informed decision making when acquiring content in the future. 

Ensure Copyright Compliance

Simplify compliance with visibility of copyright permissions right within each record, users have access to all necessary details without having to look it up elsewhere – taking user burden away and minimizing infringement risk for your organization. The system's customized settings allow you to tailor usage rights based on specific needs, helping ensure everyone is following protocol with ease. 

Connect Seamlessly to Preferred Databases

A platform's compatibility and integration across all publishers and literature databases, such as PubMed, SciFinder, Embase, ScienceDirect, is essential not only for comprehensive content search and acquisition, but also in user adoption. Adopting a new platform can feel difficult, and users often prefer what they already know best, despite any new impressive features and functionality. By allowing full text retrieval from their preferred sources, you can ensure smoother adoption of the latest technology while continuing to improve user experience. 

Work in a Shared Library

Working together across teams is the best way to unlock the full power of your literature management tool. Keep your projects on track by staying in the loop with colleagues by updating and adding to your company’s PDF library and by organizing and sharing folders and subfolders. With easy visibility into where your team is focused, resource and knowledge sharing can be simple and effective. 

Reduce Strain of Manually Citing Literature

In the ever-evolving world of medical and regulatory data, it's critical for organizations to have a way of easily storing and organizing vital references. Comprehensive reference management ensures precise, high-quality information and an understanding of citation requirements and obligations. The ability to choose your citation style easily with your platform is also key to maximize efficiency when managing citations across diverse projects.
