    Abstract

    Professionals in organizations often make use of source material in order to write an evaluation, a report or a recommendation. This task, also known as writing-from-sources, is increasingly being performed, either totally or partially, in a digital environment. Reasons for this could be that the source material is too extensive, or unable to be effectively searched if it were to be printed. In this dissertation we study the writing-from-sources task based on the behaviour of professionals who have been asked to write a text, in an on-screen environment, based on a website containing information while being allowed to make notes using a note-taking tool.
