SciPlanner is an interactive workspace that allows you to visually combine and organize the relevant results of multiple searches into a workspace.  The search types may be any combination of Explore References, Explore Substances, and Explore Reactions.  

SciPlanner allows the free movement of data within the workspace and initiation of SciFinder searches (references, substances and reactions) from within the workspace.

Information that you put in SciPlanner can be saved and printed. SciPlanner information may also be exported into PDF files (plan contents), PNG files (workspace images), and RIS files (reference content).

Additional information is available in the following introductory videos:
