Abstract

Scientific and professional research and writing academic papers have always been a challenge for people with experience and for those who are just starting with these activities. Nowadays, when the digital transformation in this field has reached its full bloom, we have various digital tools at our disposal to help us in research and writing academic papers in an organized way. Digital technologies have created a new ecosystem for research, both for searching and accessing information as well as for writing with the possibility of mutual collaboration among authors. The paper highlights the major categories of digital tools and describes the most important ones in more detail. Digital tools help authors throughout the research process and in writing academic papers. These include thinking about an idea, taking notes from the literature, citing, adding graphical elements, and collaborating with colleagues in real-time. A new paradigm in writing academic papers with the help of artificial intelligence was briefly discussed, which includes the use of language models of natural language, and text processing with a critical review of the ethics of using these tools was briefly discussed.


The research was conducted on the use of digital tools in two populations: teachers and students. The obtained research results were presented and discussed, after which appropriate conclusions were drawn.
