New in DEVONagent 3.10:
Version 3.10 adds a new plugin for searching Google Scholar for case law. Google Scholar indexes scholarly books, articles, abstracts, and court opinions. The update also brings new versions of plugins for searching Google Patent Search, the British Library, BBC News, Reuters, RocketNews, FindLaw, and the publications of the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

“Finding references and court opinions dominates the work of attorneys and law students. DEVONagent Pro is the ideal tool for in-depth research in databases like Lexis, FindLaw, EUR-Lex, and now also Google Scholar. It not only searches all these sources but also post-filters them. Sophisticated search operators drill down to the ground. And what’s left DEVONagent presents to the lawyer in an environment that lets them directly work with them”, comments Eric Bohnisch-Volkmann, President of DEVONtechnologies.

For quick queries, DEVONagent Pro now supports DuckDuckgo Bangs in the internal browser. These keywords, beginning with an exclamation mark, make it easy to search a specific website. Found search results can be archived to DEVONthink now also as Markdown or HTML-based formatted note. A decluttering option removes unnecessary text and images.
