Bookends 15.0.1 – Reference management and bibliography software


Bookends is a full-featured bibliography/reference and information-management system for students and professionals.


Access the power of Bookends directly from Mellel, Nisus Writer Pro, or MS Word (including Word 2011): Bookends allows you to scan your existing word-processor files and automatically generate finished manuscripts with properly formatted bibliographies. You can also scan Apple Pages ’08, ’09, and 5, and OpenOffice 3 files, or RTF files saved from any word processor.


Bookends allows you to share your references over the Internet with anyone, on any platform. And with Bookends, you can directly search and import references from numerous sources:

  • EndNote
  • PubMed
  • Web of Science
  • Google Scholar
  • Amazon
  • Library of Congress
  • arXiv
  • and hundreds of other online sources.


Or use a built-in browser to download references with PDF’s and/or Web pages. Also, with automatic searches of PubMed, you can discover articles as soon as they’re published. Bookends allows for powerful group-based searches, with static, smart, and virtual groups.


Bookends also offers a robust assortment of file attachment features:

  • Attach any file (such as a PDF) to a reference and view or open it instantly.
  • Automatically rename and organize PDF files on-the-fly.
  • Automatically download and attach the PDF of an article from the Internet if you have access permission.
  • Automatically locate and attach PDF’s on your hard drive.

Sync your library with Bookends On Tap on your iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch, so that you have your references and PDF’s with you, wherever you are.



Version 15.0.1:

  • Halt PDF downloads when importing many references at once (batch downloading)
    • The download progress window now has a Stop button in additon to Skip. This may be useful if, for example, Internet access is slow or you have mistakenly triggered the search and download process for many references at once.
  • Updated Journal Glossary
    • The Journal Glossary window is no longer modal and follows the conventions of nomal document windows, including Command-S to save and Command-W to close. Use a right-click contextual menu to remove a journal. Clicking the plus button to add a journal creates an empty row for you to fill. Move from column to column by pressing Tab (forward) or Shift-Tab (backward).
  • Edits to a journal glossary will take effect immediately
    • Previously this required an app relaunch.
  • Search all fields or individual database fields (e.g. Authors, Title, etc.) while using Floating Citations
    • Click on the search field magnifying glass to select a specific field.
  • A right-click on controls in the library window will open the appropriate contextual menu even when it is in the background
  • Change the font size of the Summary pane via a right-click contextual menu
    • The same size will be used for notecards.
  • Bookends will not let you create a new library in a file sync folder (e.g. Dropbox, iCloud Drive, etc.)
    • Such services can corrupt databases. Synchronization should only be done by Bookends cloud sync, which syncs the data, not the file.
  • More information in provided when checking for updates
  • Cosmetic improvements
  • Fixes
    • Fixed a bug where PDFs imported from the watch folder weren’t renamed if they were attached to an existing reference.
    • Fixed a bug in the Journal Glossary window were Edit -> Paste did not insert text into the search field or list cells.
    • Fixed a bug when attaching multiple PDFs at once where a PDF could be attached to the wrong reference.
    • A question mark at the end of an imported title will be preserved.
    • Removed mentions of the Web of Science from the UI.
    • Fixed a bug when using a CSL style where only the first initial was output when the authors name contained two or more initials in a row.
