Scientific Word and Scientific Workplace make creating science, mathematics and text documents convenient. Beyond regular word processors, this software includes expanded toolbars with math and science symbols, figures and equations. When typing a math or science equation, the software can read and format your text automatically. This software is perfect for college or professional science and math reports.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Purchase the Scientific Word and Workplace version appropriate for your uses. Student, personal and commercial usage may require different versions of the software that are priced differently.

  2. 2

    Download the software to your computer. Open a new, blank document by clicking "File" > "New" > "Report" > "Standard LATEX Report."

  3. 3

    Create a title page by clicking "Typeset" on the toolbar. Click "Front Matter". Change the "Title", "Author" and "Date" by clicking and replacing the text.

  4. 4

    Press "Enter" to begin typing text into the document. Format text as usual with the options on the toolbar.

  5. 5

    Enter mathematical equations by clicking "View" > "Toolbars" > "Math2" > "Symbol" > "Field." Type the equation and use the toolbar to enter mathematical symbols. The program will read your entry and automatically format the text mathematically.

  6. 6

    Enter in-text citations. Click on "Citation". Enter the name of the citation, such as "John Smith". When the "Item Tag" dialogue box pops up, choose "Bibliography Item". Type in full bibliographic information. Select "OK" and close the dialogue box.

  7. 7

    Save your document by going to "File" > "Save." Attach and send your document as you normally would. Save as a PDF to prevent changes in formatting between readers.
