Reference Manager beta test coming soon!

Dear Reference Manager Users,

For all of you that have been patiently waiting, we want to let you know that we have been hard at work developing our next version and it is almost time for beta testing! The purpose of this posting is to provide you with an opportunity to apply to be a beta tester. We anticipate beta testing will begin next month and will run through July.

Operating systems supported for Reference Manager will be Windows XP with SP2 and Windows Vista. Supported word processors are Word XP, Word 2003 and Word 2007.

Requirements for beta testers include:

  • Owning a registered copy of Reference Manager 10 or later or being an authorized user at an institution with a site license. We will not include users of the Demo product in beta testing.
  • Having prior experience beta testing recent versions of Reference Manager if possible. We regret that we cannot provide technical support during the testing cycle (except for new features), so you must have a good grasp of Reference Manager’s features and functionality to be a beta tester.
  • Being available to test during the entire cycle.
  • Availability of a computer running one of the supported operating systems.

If you meet these criteria and would like to apply to be a beta tester, please fill out and submit the beta tester application at When the first beta release is close to being ready, we will contact you regarding your eligibility. Beta testers may be awarded a complimentary copy of the released version of Reference Manager. Complimentary copies are sent out at the discretion of the Reference Manager Team and are based on quality of feedback and extent of participation.

Thank you for your support of Reference Manager and we look forward to hearing from you soon!


The Reference Manager Team
