University Student In Library

Due to the impact of COVID-19 on schools and students, we will be extending the scholarship deadline to May 1st, 2020. In addition, there will be changes to the annual CAJ conference prize as the conference for 2020 has been cancelled. We will keep you informed of any modifications or updates to that prize.

If you’re a student who just started your major in journalism, or have already been doing journalistic work for a school paper, we’ve got some exciting news that you’ll enjoy.

We’re proud to announce today the launch of our new annual Investintech – CAJ Data Journalism Scholarship!

Partnering with the Canadian Association of Journalists (CAJ), a major journalism organization that supports and encourages excellence in journalism across Canada, our aim is to help the future generation of journalists like you.

We know that Able2Extract is being used by data journalists to extract PDF data into Excel spreadsheets for analysis. Their ultimate goal? To write news stories that are backed by accurate and credible data.

In this day and age of fake news, though, this level of credibility can be undermined. As such, there is a growing call for journalists to dig deeper into large amounts of digital data and analysis.

This takes skill training, time, and money–all of which can work against you as you continue to work and study your way into the industry.

How To Annotate and Review PDF Files

Annotating and reviewing PDF content

Dealing with PDF documents for business, research or academic purposes requires different types of reading and reviewing. In most cases, it also requires interacting with the text, namely marking up text, highlighting passages or underlining important points.

For instance, with business documents, you can come across company content such as business contracts or departmental information you’d need to collaborate amongst your colleagues. 

Highlighting text and writing short summaries in the margins for academic and school readings is a regular habit that can’t be avoided while studying. 

Moreover, heavy research would normally require that you mark up, cross-reference or make notes on significant data or statistics 

Now that most documents are digital, though, how do you do all of that electronically? 

We’ll show you how you can fully annotate your PDF using Able2Extract PDF Converter and Editor in all three of the above instance, putting this feature into context for you.

Being on a computer, you’ll automatically find yourself searching for the tools you need, whether it be a word processor, an image editor, or a programming tool.

Obviously, the academic setting is already difficult to balance without the added stress of dealing with digital documents – including the PDF format.

While you may not think it, a PDF tool is an absolute must. This can include anything from taking notes and filling out registration forms to transferring content and editing content.
