Microsoft Research struts its stuff

Microsoft Research this week is showing off some of its latest advances to more than 400 faculty members from leading research institutions. Among them: free software tools for publishing, saving and sharing research data. These include Article Authoring Add-in for Word 2007, which enables metadata to be grabbed during the authoring stage to protect a document's structure throughout the publishing lifecycle. Other tools include one for self publishing online-only journals and another that uses SharePoint Server 2007 for sharing info among researchers.
