C-3 Plus Freeform-Suite

is an easy to use data acquisition tool. It is particularly useful for indexing non-recurring tables of contents or those with difficult recognition patterns. The marking of the article data (author, title, page reference) is done manually.

The C-3 Plus FreeformSuite, which is based on the BCS-2 software, generates compound-compatible data formats, so that the data can be transferred directly into the respective compound databases.
