Bookends 13.2.5 | 56.9 MB

Bookends is a full-featured bibliography/reference and information-management system for students and professionals.

Access the power of Bookends directly from Mellel, Nisus Writer Pro, or MS Word (including Word 2011): Bookends allows you to scan your existing word-processor files and automatically generate finished manuscripts with properly formatted bibliographies. You can also scan Apple Pages ’08, ’09, and 5, and OpenOffice 3 files, or RTF files saved from any word processor.

Bookends allows you to share your references over the Internet with anyone, on any platform. And with Bookends, you can directly search and import references from numerous sources:

Web of Science
Google Scholar
Library of Congress
and hundreds of other online sources.
Or use a built-in browser to download references with PDF’s and/or Web pages. Also, with automatic searches of PubMed, you can discover articles as soon as they’re published. Bookends allows for powerful group-based searches, with static, smart, and virtual groups.

Bookends also offers a robust assortment of file attachment features:

Attach any file (such as a PDF) to a reference and view or open it instantly.
Automatically rename and organize PDF files on-the-fly.
Automatically download and attach the PDF of an article from the Internet if you have access permission.
Automatically locate and attach PDF’s on your hard drive.
Sync your library with Bookends On Tap on your iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch, so that you have your references and PDF’s with you, wherever you are.


What’s New
Version 13.2.5:

Bookends code is hardened and notarizedThis is in preparation for the upcoming macOS 10.15 (Catalina).
Embed links to web pages in formatted references:This is controlled by the format by the use of < and > punctuation – see the section on formatting in the User Guide for details. Embedding links to external web pages works with Microsoft Word 2016 (version 15.x) or later and Nisus Writer Pro. It does not work with Mellel at this time. It will not work with Pages or LibreOffice
Global Change -> Standardize Journal Names:This option is enabled if you are using a journal glossary. You can choose to have all journal names found in the glossary be changed to the short name (e.g. J. Biol. Chem.) or the full name (e.g. Journal of Biological Chemistry), and/or have periods removed (e.g. J Biol Chem). It is not necessary to have the same journal name be identical in all corresponding references because the glossary will substitute the required form at the time of formatting. However, some users want uniformity in the library itself and in the Journal Term List
PDFs can be downloaded automatically from more journals
Updated database engine
Refs -> OpenURL Search will display the results in the library window browser view (lower pane)This makes it easier to click through links to a PDF and then attach it to the reference. Previously Bookends opened the results in an external browser
