We present a system for the support of research and writing of scientific papers. People involved in the process of research need to perform at least two general kinds of tasks. Firstly, laboriously analyze the given data, perform evaluation experiments and from the experiment results prepare materials for writing a scientific paper, such as tables, graphs, or descriptions of the results. The second task is to provide a creative discussion for the results. To ease the researchers, and allow them to focus more on the creative part, we propose a system which helps performing the laborious part of research. The system prepares the data for the experiments, automatically performs the experiments and from the results calculates the scores of Precision, Recall, F-score, Accuracy, Specificity and phi-coefficient. It also creates tables in LaTex template containing all the results, draws graphs depicting and informatively comparing each groups of results and generates descriptions of those results using sentence templates.
