Annotation tool

In three easy steps, the Annotation tool offers an effective facilitation of collaborative literature processing and interactive peer feedback.

Sadly, we cannot continue hosting the Annotation tool and will end it per 01-01-2017. We are attempting to publish the source code as Open Source, so anyone can set up their own server. Please contact us at if you are interested to do so.

Test it here!               Example: Literature processing (VU)               Example: Peer feedback (UU)
