Scholars and professors looking for a solid reference manager should do well to take a look at Sente. With advanced search features, capabilities to view and make use of references from hundreds of sources, Sente can help you work on you research paper.

The search function itself is pretty impressive, with access to university library catalogs, PubMed and the Web of Knowledge. You can create your own searches and have Sente retrieve results for you everyday, letting you flag the ones you consider most important. With an interface not unlike that of iTunes, catalogs and journals are all kept well organized and can be easily browsed. You can skim through based on all sorts of key terms such as author or year of publication.

What's a reference manager if you can't make use of the information? Keep the references you've collected into smart collections which you'll create based on your own criteria. We also appreciate being able to search for and download PDFs, enabling to print out a physical copy of the reference. It's also fairly easy to insert citations into any word processor that you use.

Sente is an excellent reference manager, extremely useful for research

Changes

  • Improvements to the PDF View
  • Zooming in and out is now supported. There are commands in the main menu as well as the context menu within the PDF view. Pinch can be used on trackpads.
  • Improved handling of page cropping.
  • Improved support for PDF annotations made in other programs. Work remains in this area, but this version is much better than previous releases.
  • Added support for additional types of text and font encoding. This improves text selection and extraction in many PDFs, including many of those generated using Clearscan OCR technology.
  • Miscellaneous
  • Fixed a problem that prevented some users from accessing Google Scholar in Sente's embedded browser.
  • Added or enhanced targeted browsing support for SpringerLink, Science Magazine, ERIC, Sage, Nature, Walter de Gruyter Publications, search.ProQuest.com, InformaWorld, PLoS, Liebert On-line, and Persee.fr.
  • Modified the EndNote importer to handle single references with up to 256k of data. Also improved support for institutional authors on import. Added support for electronic books. Improved handling of PDF links within EndNote XML files.
  • Modified COINS support to handle the type "research article."

Since it was first introduced in 2004, Sente has been adopted by thousands of users who appreciate having a reference manager that works the way they want it to work.

These users take advantage of Sente's ability to search hundreds of data sources, and to update those searches with new results each day.

They rely on Sente's powerful organizational tools to help them deal with thousands of references in their fields.

They are thrilled with the way that Sente can automatically file and rename the PDF files they attach to their references, and the way Sente can automatically update all these files every time they change their minds on how they should be organized!

And they rave about Sente's intuitive, Mac-like interface that makes it such a pleasure to use.

Now, with Sente 5, users can take advantage of an updated interface, including the most flexible reference editor ever. The new, more powerful bibliography formatting engine in Sente understands the subtleties of the most complicated formats, like APA and Chicago. And Sente's new database design supports larger libraries with better performance, for people who need to cast a wide net.

If you are a student, professor, or researcher -- anyone who works with academic literature -- you should give Sente 5 a try.
