Biblioscape is an information manager for researchers, scholarly writers, students, and librarians. People use it to organize literature references, research notes, automatically generate citations and bibliographies automatically, search and capture bibliographic data on the Internet, and post bibliographic databases live on the web. The flood of bibliographic resources on the Internet requires new solutions for bibliographic information management. Biblioscape offers such a solution -- whether you work alone, or as part of a group, or even in a large organization.

What's new in Biblioscape 8

Built on top of the milestone version 7 release, some interesting features have been added to make adding new references very easy. I will briefly describe the major changes under the following sections:

• The folder panel is now called "Projects". Under the projects panel, users can add folders as well as collections. A record (reference, note, etc.) can reside only under one folder, but can be included in many collections. Both folders and collections are designed to represent a research project you need to work on.
• Inside the projects panel, you can go to all the following modules: references, notes, tasks, charts, categories, composition, library, deleted, links, and Internet.
• After clicking on a folder or collection, Biblioscape will display the number of records under that folder or collection so you can easily see how many records are under each folder and collection.

• The Online Search tab has been added, and searching and capturing references has become very simple. Under the "Web Search" tab, two popular search engines are included: Google Scholar and PubMed Medline. Under the "Z39.50" tab, more than 2,000 sites are included, most of which are university library catalogs. For both "Web Search" and "Z39.50" search, users only need to enter a search string; the hits will be captured automatically into the "Online Search" folder. Users can then drag and drop them into other folders.
• When users browse to a reference, Biblioscape will automatically look for the full text of the selected reference using major search engines.
• When users browse a reference, Biblioscape will automatically look for related references of the selected reference using major search engines.
• If the full text of the selected reference is available, it will be displayed inside Biblioscape wether the file is in PDF or HTML format.
• The following fields have been added to the reference table: Original_pub, Custom_date, Custom_number.
• Users can now organize references under a folder or collection in a parent-child relationship. For example, you can put all book chapter references under the book reference.

• Notes versioning support has been added. You can select a note and create a snapshot, then compare snapshots side by side. You can easily revert back to a snapshot.
• Notes under a collection can have an independent parent child relationship as well as independent ordering. For example, note A can be the parent of note B in a folder, but when both notes are included in a collection, note B can be made the parent of note A.


When linking to a categories folder, if the link type is "Metadata", all the categories under that folder will be linked. This can be used to add metadata for a record.


The composition module is designed to help users write long research papers, theses, or books. The compiled final draft will include formatted citations and a bibliography, a Table of Contents, a formatted suggested reading list, a glossary, and an index. The composition module is only available in the Professional and Librarian editions.

Version 8.01 Patch:

* Improvement: Ctrl+D is now used instead of Del as the shortcut to delete the selected references.
* Improvement: Instead of checking the presence of the Adobe Acrobat Reader at the startup, it is now checked only when users click the PDF tab.
