Online research made easy
Selenium is the all-in-one research application for your Mac. Whether you're a student, professional researcher, or just someone with an insatiable thirst for knowledge, Selenium is for you. By bringing together a browser, PDF manager, outliner, word processor and bibliography manager in one window, Selenium ensures that you'll never need to switch between several applications to conduct research on the Web - or try to get them to work together.
Write, cite and conduct research — all in one window
Selenium brings together an assortment of tools to help you find what you need. Here's how Selenium can help you:
Selenium allows you to create and work with multiple projects. Each project has its own bibliography, outline, PDFs, writing section and snippets, and they can be switched between instantly to research different subjects.
Full Web Browser
To help you find information, Selenium includes a complete web browser with downloads support, history, bookmarks, tabs and more.
Built-in Word Processor
Once you've got some information, you can write your paper right in Selenium. Featuring a live word count and a full complement of text editing capabilities, Selenium's word processor allows you to write while you view your sources.
To organize your thoughts and plan your research, you may want to make an outline - and Selenium's got you covered. You can add reminders or details to any topic and each item can be marked as completed so you always know where you stand.
Citations and Bibliographies
A big part of doing research is keeping track of your sources, and Selenium makes it easy. With its built-in bibliography and citation manager, Selenium will give credit where it's due - and even assemble your reference list for you!
In the course of your research, you're likely to assemble a large collection of PDFs. Wouldn't it be great if you could manage and annotate them to mark significant portions? Once again, Selenium has it taken care of with its PDF manager and annotation mode.
Google Docs Support
Research is always easier with collaboration, and one of the easiest ways to work with others on papers is Google Docs. Selenium allows you to upload, download and share documents with Google Docs to work with others across the office or around the globe.
iSight Barcode Scanning
Selenium makes it fast and easy to add sources by allowing you to scan their barcodes using your built-in or external iSight. Selenium will do the hard work for you by fetching the source's information, allowing you to concentrate on your research.
Selenium 3.6.2 brings numerous fixes and improvements from previous versions. Here's some of what's new:
- Fixed glitches when exporting bibliographies containing accented characters
- Fixed potential crash when scanning invalid barcodes
- Improved reliability of barcode scanning
- Changed label of Save toolbar item to Export to better represent its functionality
- Fixed inserting citation style tokens in French
