I've been looking for a program like Scholar's Aid for the last two years: yours is the first that understands that humanities scholars need to *quote* as well as cite references. Thank you so much! ---- Nick, U.K. See more

About Scholar's Aid 4AE
Scholar's Aid 4 AE is a program package that includes a bibliographical data manager called Library, an importing/exporting manager called DataRetriever, and a notes/information manager called Notes.
Library manages bibliographical data, and is packed with a wide range of easy and powerful functions that many users have praised. DataRetriever transforms external data such as z39.50 data to SA data and vise versa.  Notes manages notes and other information in a hierarchical structure, and enables you to retrieve the information (whenever you need it) in various ways. The three modules are tightly integrated using OLE Automation technology, thereby enabling you to achieve levels of flexibility and control over your data that no other comparable program can match.

I think this is the greatest program since a word processor -- Beth Amega, Australia


The function of the Library module is to store and organize bibliographical data drawn from a wide range of sources (books, articles, Internet web sites, etc.), and to link this information to the notes created in the Notes module.
    Library generates the most common forms of references (full and short footnotes, full and short parenthetical references, bibliographical entries and reference list items), which are then transferred automatically to documents loaded in a word processor by issuing a simple menu command or by clicking a button. The format of the resulting reference can conform to one of the standard styles supplied with the package (Chicago, APA, etc.), or to a style designed by users to meet their own specific requirements.

You can't do research without this programme. . . . Highly recommended and support is excellent -- Pam, England


This module is integrated into the Library module. It has three built-in data providers. Z39.50 retriever: Connects to over 1,500 Z39.50 servers worldwide and gets the bibliographical data directly and enables users to add the list to the Library database automatically. Endnote data retriever: Now you can easily upgrade to SA from Endnote without retyping your data. XML data provider: You can easily share your data with your friends with this structured text data file.
   This module can be easily expanded by adding plug-ins for additional data formats.


The Notes module has been in development for many months, but the end result is a program  that offers scholars, researchers and students a powerful tool for creating, managing and searching their notes.
    In addition to its core function of enabling users to create their own notes on the sources entered in the Library module, Notes provides a huge range of additional resources.
    So, for example: hyperlinks can be created to link one note to single or multiple targets, targets that are either to be found in other notes or in quite different files located on the same computer; each note can be linked to its source in the Library module in such a way that, when you transfer any text from the note into your word processing program by clicking a button, Notes automatically makes a proper citation, complete with the appropriate page number; its hierarchical structure enables you to organize your notes effectively from the start and offers easy ways to  modify that structure as your work develops; Notes allows you to associate keywords with individual notes, thereby providing another way of organizing, managing, and retrieving your data; Notes' powerful search engine can search for the information you need, not just  in the open file, but in all the Notes data files stored on your computer, and it achieves this with a single command and at remarkable speed.
    The Note Type Editor enables you to customize the types of note that you use -- there are seven predefined note types (Folder, General, Summary, Quotation, MyIdea, TableNote, and WebNote), but you can also add your own custom-made note types.

It's a great programme!! It has helped me organise my information greatly -- ESPECIALLY the notes section! -- Esther Besel, Canada
