A free download is now available to help journalists organize information for stories. The software, "Journalist Information Management Tracking Software 3.0," provides a form of workflow lifecycle management for journalists to research and manage information.

Using the software, journalists can arrange research into workflow categories like "confirmed great story," "to research more," "final editing" or "ready for publishing."

Journalists can then move each article through the life cycle until it gets published. Story sources, descriptions, dates, Web sites and contact information can also be stored for each story.
