Sente 4.2 adds ability to search Thomson Web of Science

in Software (F)


Denver, Colorado, USA -- Third Street Software, Inc. today announced a major new version of Sente, the popular academic reference manager for Mac OS X. The new features in Sente 4.2 include:

* Sente can now search Thomson Web of Knowledge / Web of Science directly. Anyone with access to these databases can now search them directly in Sente, rather than exporting search results from the Thomson web interface and importing the results into Sente. A subscription is required to access the WoK/WoS databases. (See for more information about the Web of Knowledge.)

* Sente can now search OAIster using the SRU data source plugin. OAIster is a catalog of over 10 million digital resources drawn hundreds of resources around the Internet. OAIster does not require a subscription. (See for more information about OAIster.)

* Handling of SilverPlatter data has been improved (i.e., extraneous hyphens are now stripped from the data). A subscription is required to access SilverPlatter. (See for more information about SilverPlatter.)

* Sente supports new features coming in Mellel v2.2, including new citation formatting options. (See for more information about Mellel.)

This is a free upgrade for all registered Sente users.

Sente 4.2 is a Universal Binary application and requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later. (An older version of Sente is available for users not yet running OS X 10.4.)


Sente is a program that helps scientists, teachers, students and others keep up with the published, academic literature. Sente provides a consistent interface that enables users to search hundreds of data sources, and Sente automatically looks for new search results every day. Sente also includes unique and powerful features for reviewing and organizing these search results, using a familiar, iTunes-like interface.


A standard, single-user license for Sente can be purchased for USD $129.95. Academic licenses are available for USD $89.95.

Sente is also available in a boxed version for retail sales. Interested resellers should write to for more information.
