Reviews of PAPYRUS Version 8.0

Direct import from Medline, via BioMedNet


PAPYRUS Version 8.0 for Macintosh is a full-featured, highly customizable bibliography database system, with additional features for organizing your notes, quotations, and graphic images.

You can download PAPYRUS for free.

The current edition of PAPYRUS is Version 8.0.12.

PAPYRUS is a Classic application. It can be run under OS X within the Classic environment.

The new Intel-based Macs released in 2006 and beyond do not support the Classic environment.

To run Classic applications on Intel-based Macs, there are some options you might wish to explore. One Papyrus user has reported good results in using the SheepShaver emulator.
