Welcome to Flow


Welcome to the Flow research guide!  This guide will help you learn how to manage your documents in one place.

What is Flow?

Flow is a new way to collect, manage and organize research papers and documents.  You can read, annotate, organize, and cite your research as well as collaborate with friends and colleagues by sharing collections.

Flow’s drag and drop capability along with our smart document recognition makes it ease and fast to upload documents and bibliographic metadata into your library and the Save to Flow feature allows you to capture research from websites with the click of a button.

Flow and Google Docs

ProQuest Flow for Google Docs lets you add in-text and footnote citations to your document (and edit them), auto-generating your bibliography as you write. Choose from any of our 3,000 citation styles, and watch your citations and bibliography automatically update. Use our “save to Flow” button to add references to your collections from anywhere on the web, then instantly cite them in your Google doc. No syncing required.
