Biblioscape version 8 is released by CG Information. The trial copy is available for download at http://biblioscape.com/download.htm. Version 8 can open a Biblioscape database from earlier releases and convert it to the version 8 format. Please back up your old database before opening it in version 8.
Version 8 has many new features that make capturing references and taking notes easier. Users can now search references at Google Scholar and PubMed; the hits will be automatically captured into your database. It is also possible to search the catlogs of 2,000 plus university and public libraries through the Z39.50 protocol. As you browse your reference collection, Biblioscape can autoamtically search the Internet and find related references, as well as the full text if it is freely available.
Taking notes is an important part of research writing. Biblioscape allows users to take different kinds of notes while reading a reference. Notes are automatically linked to their sources and categorized. You can use your notes later in a word processor or inside the Biblioscape composition module. The composition module is designed to write a thesis or book. It provides an integrated writing environment and can generate a table of contents, index, suggested reading list, etc. A note can be used in more than one writing project. You can also keep multiple copies of a note through the notes versioning support.
You are welcome to install the Biblioscape trial copy. It is fully functional for 100 sessions.
