We redefine desk-research.
Today, scientists work with a variety of media formats. Thus, in the course of a source-based research process, a vast collection of different analog and digital sources are created. Especially in the beginning of a research process, which is often characterized by conceptual openness and a lack of structure, the great challenge for researchers is to work out one or more concepts from the collected material. Elevation is a web-based software concept which supports the initial stage of a (collaborative) research process and provides a useful feature set, giving researchers a better overview and handling of their collected material.
