Sente 5.5 enhances PDF
Third Street Software has released Sente 5.5 with enhanced PDF management. Sente is an academic reference manager that helps users find, organize, review and cite the academic literature. Version 5.5 offers the ability to create references directly from the PDF files they already have, as well as new PDFs that they receive from colleagues. It also adds the ability to create complete references by entering only an ISBN, DOI or other common identifier using Google Scholar, the Library of Congress and PubMed to create complete references when importing a new PDF.
The new features complement the improved PDF acquisition tools introduced in Sente 5.4, which enable Sente to automatically download, rename and file any PDF the user clicks on in the new Links view.
Version 5.5 also includes a new Quick Add feature that lets users create complete citations from only an ISBN, DOI or PubMed ID.
Sente 5.x requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later and is a Universal Binary for both PowerPC- and Intel-based Macs. Version 5.5 a free upgrade for all Sente 5 owners, while upgrades from Sente v1, v2 or v3 are $40. A standard, single-user license for Sente can be purchased for $130, while academic licenses are available for $90. A fully-functional, 30-day demo is available online.
