    “If I had thought about it, I wouldn’t have done the experiment. The literature was full of examples that said you can’t do this.” Spencer Silver on the work that led to the unique adhesives for 3-M “Post-It” Notepads. I’m currently looking at, as it is supposed to work well with DEVON think. I don’t think that I will change my literature management from DEVON think to, but there are a couple of features that look really nice and much better solved than in other programs or reference managers: Quicktags Tagging is highly important when you have a couple of thousand references (which you will have very quickly), but it is often poorly supported. Sente not only offers auto-completion and has a text field large enough to enter tags, it also offers a Quicktags window where you can hierarchically sort the tags and assign them with a single click. Best thing is that the parent tags are implicitly assigned to the references as well, not as ‘real’ tags, but as implied tags.

Note Taking worth talking about I don’t understand why most reference manager offer poor note-taking capabilities. Often it’s only a text field, that’s it. Sente offers the first clever way of taking notes. You highlight text and click on a button and it creates a note with title (automatically from the first few words, you can change them), page number, quotation, and your own thoughts. I still have to find out whether you can export these notes, but the way it is done is perfect.

    Sente for Mac, since its version 6.5 release, is a very solid application for managing and organizing your PDFs (and books) that will grow on you over time. But before you browse to Sente’s online store with your credit card in-hand, check out Sente’s iPad companion app as well as what its closest competitor, Papers for Mac and Papers for. Sente and Papers are popular Mac utilities to handle academic articles. Papers focus on organization, reading and annotation of articles, whereas Sente’s primary function is bibliography management (citing articles in your own publications and creating bibliography lists).

    Just what you need. Notetaking The image is a screenshot from the Sente Instruction Video from the website.

    Quick Conclusion From first glance looks like a Reference Manager where the programmers actually thought about it and offered ways to deal with literature that make sense. Still, it’s unlikely that I switch my literature to, as I am quite happy with DEVON think. But if you are looking for a powerful literature manager for Mac (and iPad!) have a look at.

    (And yup, this is one of those moments where. Hi again Daniel Great info again here – and timely!

    I have been a bit confused about the role of DTP & lit management when compared to Sente/Mendely/EndNote etc. I am interested how/why you chose DTP over a more traditional lit manager? DTP doesn’t offer ‘cite-while-u-write’ capabilities which is a big drawcard for me & when I think about workflow it seems insane to run DTP AND Sente/Mendely AND CP. So it is an either/or. Obviously there are ontological differences between the softwares & I understand the draw to DTP – but I am wondering if you would set up a project differently if starting again? Given that DTP doesn’t have the search/retrieve functions of traditional lit managers, did you just write your refs/biblio in by hand when the time came? I am not a master of Sente/EndNote – in fact in the past when I have tried to use them I have given up but the UI’s have improved – especially with Mendeley & I am not sure that I see the value of DTP when compared – although I am prepared to be convinced
