Malkinware announces Reference Tracker 1.5 for Mac OS X

Malkinware today is delighted to announce Reference Tracker 1.5, an update to their popular academic reference manager and research tool for Mac OS X. Reference Tracker is an indispensable tool for writers, researchers or students. It creates documents that store all the citations and references in an essay, research project, or book and automatically creates formatted reference lists in a variety of popular reference styles to insert when needed.

Among Reference Tracker’s unique features is there is no need to type out all the details of a referenced book. Just give Reference Tracker the book’s ISBN and it will fetch all the details from the internet automatically. If the user doesn’t have the book in hand, typing keywords into its built-in publication search will get a list of matching results. With a single click, search results will be added to their reference list.

When referencing an online web resource, the application can pull all of the details from Safari or Firefox with just one click. And Reference Tracker can pull all the details from Apple’s Mail as well. Reference Tracker offers built-in sticky notes too. Users may easily add as many comments or notes to as many references as they wish.

Reference Tracker can send a formatted reference list directly to the end of word processing documents. The dynamic ‘Send To’ menu will show a list of open documents in Microsoft Word, Apple Pages and Nisus Writer Pro. Users can easily append their formatted list to the end of an open document, or create a new document with the contents of the list.

Feature highlights include:
* Create Full References in a single step
* Reference Web Pages and Emails with a single click
* Easily import existing Reference Lists from word processors or reference managers
