CiteWiz SoftwareThe Wizard for Scholars/Students Special has not only "CiteWiz," a powerful researcher's reference-collection tool and database for keeping track of all of your research and citations, but it also has complete formatting capabilities for instantly creating the structural layout of almost anything that you will ever write -- including essays, term papers, theses, and dissertations as well as books, articles, and more!

(The formatting part of this software is identical to our Wizard of Words Software. So for a complete description of that part, see Wizard of Words Software.) For the other features of the Wizard for Scholars/Students Special — all contained in our CiteWiz reference-collection tool (not sold separately and available only as part of this Special) — read on:

CiteWiz, the "Citation Wizard," instantly turns your MS Word program into a complete bibliographical/research notes program, containing a custom Microsoft Access Database that stores raw research notes and citations, and then formats your term paper, thesis, dissertation, or other research project in MS Word.  (Note: bibliography styles can be either MLA, APA or Harvard — you get both; term paper format includes Chicago/Turabian as well as MLA, APA or Harvard styles.)

CiteWiz will store Virtual Note Cards, providing the user a quick way to copy and paste raw information into the database without a lot of data entry.  In addition, the user can store a website link (URL) to retrieve or access the data later.

CiteWiz stores citations for APA and MLA papers.  And unlike any other products, it is fully editable and viewable.  Extensive built-in help is available with step by step instructions for entering data.  In addition, the database includes many sample entries from the selected style guide (either the APA Publication Manual or the MLA Handbook).  Sample papers show how they are rendered in the reference/works cited list.

And CiteWiz allows you to link to many online sources to aid in your research.  A built-in exclusive web page provides these links, where you'll find entries for commercial databases, libraries, university resources, and more.  (See screenshots for a sample of the database-links page.)

CiteWiz also provides style and grammar checking to ensure that all your work is free of major grammatical and usage errors.  (Note: this checker is not as extensive as our StyleWriter Software, but it is an excellent way to check quickly for a number of the most common grammar and usage problems.)

Here are some sample screenshots from CiteWiz:
