What is Sente for Mac

Sente is the premier academic reference manager for OS X. Sente's iTunes-like interface makes finding, reviewing, organizing and using the academic literature in your field easier than ever.

Sente (pronounced sen-tay) makes literature searches easier by providing a front-end to hundreds of data sources around the world, including: PubMed, Web of Science, Ovid, many university library catalogs, various Ovid databases (e.g., Books in Print, CAB Abstracts, Current Contents, PsychINFO -- all by subscription) Agricola, the U.S. Library of Congress, and any other literature database that supports Z39.50 or SRU, and MARC or Dublin Core record syntax.

Sente updates the results of your searches each day so that you can easily stay current with new results. This means that you will learn about important new papers as soon as they appear in any of the databases you search. And the results will remain available until you find the time to review them, even if that happens when you are not connected to the Internet.

Sente provides numerous tools to help you keep your reference library organized, including: unlimited custom data fields, unlimited custom keywords, star ratings, custom statuses, and filters that can use any of these criteria to automatically produce custom subsets of your data.

When it is time to write up your own research, Sente takes care of the details of properly formating citations and bibliographies. Sente includes over 100 pre-defined bibliography styles (e.g., Vancouver, APA, Chicago, Science, etc.) as well as an easy-to-use bibliography format editor that lets you modify the supplied formats or create your own.

A fully-functional, free version of Sente is available here at MacUpdate for download from www.thirdstreetsoftware.com. The pricing schema can be found here.

Sente no longer recognises references on Google Scholar. No response to my email to support. I really regret Sente's demise, and the app having become abandonware. Once again, if only the developers would communicate to their (loyal) customers what is going on.

I cannot believe they updated this as I've already left and gone to Mendeley. However, I am happy to see that there's still a heartbeat left. The iOS app hasn't been updated since 2014. Let's see if the updates and support come back online. In my opinion, Sente was the best when it was still chugging on all cylinders. Let's see what happens from here.

I migrated to Bookends from Sente, with considerable regret. Sente is far superior to Bookends and Papers 3 for doing online research. Indeed I continue to use it for this purpose and then import the references to Bookends. Sente puts online search results into Sente's own internal database. This allows one to interrogate large found data sets in far more detail than other apps allow. It also allows for automatic updates to search results based on any number of variables. Bookends and Papers merely display the results found in PubMed, etc. They are not downloaded into a database. So one cannot even do further searches, to narrow down the found data set, without re-running the entire search again. Sente can. This makes further ad hoc analyses of the found data set extremely quick and easy. I do hope Sente can come to life with a successful business model ...

Sente is a terrific app, especially for research purposes. However, it no longer seems to be supported (as of Mar 2016). I converted my Sente library (n>10,000) for use in Bookends. After two weeks with Bookends, I really do miss Sente for research. Plus I am finding Bookends quite buggy - I had to rebuild the database three times today already. Though - I am learning - its database rebuild capability works well. Bookends has some nice features, like searching for duplicates, that Sente lacks - though not for technical reasons. The apparent loss of Sente is a huge blow as far as I am concerned. I will continue to use it for research and import the results into Bookends. Bookends support has been excellent so far. But it does seem to be a one-man shop with very limited resources ... a concern. I will also look at Papers 3 in a few weeks.

Beware before investing time, energy and money in Sente.

It’s a great piece of software but seems on track to become abandonware. The last update to both the Mac and iOS apps has been at least a year ago. A coming update will only ensure that the app keeps functioning with El Capitan. In the past months the support site has been all but ignored by the TSS team. User requests are ignored as a matter of policy. Several threads have been launched in recent months by worried users inquiring what the future of Sente looks like. These questions have been ignored and met with deafening silence, as have personal emails.

Meanwhile Sente’s main competitor Bookends has released an update recently with vastly improved import from Sente, a clear sign. To be clear: I own Sente as well as Bookends and actually switched to Sente over a year ago because of its Quicktags system, ability to nest smart groups into smart groups, and overall better GUI. I have invested a lot of time in transitioning from Bookends to Sente and my academic workflow is very much built around it. I also rely heavily on the iPad app which is also great. I can understand temporary silences and I am willing to give a lot of credit to developers if the app is worth it. But the company's current disdain for its customers suggests the end of the app might be in sight.

I purchased a Sente 6 license and installed it under Mavericks, following directions. All attempts to add the registration number failed with an odd error ('signature failed'). Part of this was my fault (I used the wrong email address), but I followed directions to fix this. Still no success. The support person then made a series of suggestions, all of which failed. I supplied the logs he requested and detailed reports on what I had tried. After two days of trying to sort this out, he simply stopped responding to my inquiries. After four days, when I was still unable to register and got no response despite multiple politely worded requests for help, I wrote a more firmly worded message saying basically that I required some kind of reply, and if I didn't get one, I would be compelled to file a complaint. I got an answer back almost immediately saying: No need to file a complaint, I have issued a refund you should see within a day or two. They would have saved me a lot of trouble if they had just admitted that they didn't know how to fix the problem. It's great software, but I was very unhappy with this unprofessional and rude treatment by support. And I still haven't seen the refund.

Reference and document syncing between the desktop and iPad version has worked flawlessly for me through the past term, including annotations. One of the features of Sente that has amazed me the most is the web browser which auto-detects citations while browsing academic sites and auto-adds PDFs to the relevant reference.
