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.
