Our website has been designed to support a variety of web browsers in different versions. We are compatible on PC, Macintosh and Linux computers.
In general, it should be avoided to move to preceding pages within the Beilstein Publishing System by using the browser "Back" button, because this can lead to synchronization problems with your session on the server. Instead, the web site provides buttons labeled "Back" and "Previous" on certain pages to facilitate the navigation.
The problem can be avoided if the file is first saved to your local drive and then imported into your particular reference manager program. For example, this can be done with Endnote by selecting the "Import..." option from the "File" menu. A dialogue box opens that allows the selection of a "Text Translation"; just choose Unicode (UTF-8) here and special characters are imported correctly.
If you copy & paste the text from versions older than Microsoft Word 2003, some special characters like Greek letters may appear as Roman letters. To solve this problem, please use the corresponding control (Ω symbol) in the horizontal toolbar above the text entry field. If no toolbar is given, please use the Character Map program which is installed on your Windows PC. Simply, click on Start > Run and type the command "charmap" into the window that opens. The Character Map program enables you to select the characters you want from the font "Arial" or "Times New Roman" and copy & paste them correctly into the text fields.
You need to make sure the correct character encoding is specified: this can be set in the options of most browsers and should be set to UTF-8. However, some email service providers do not handle the extra characters at the moment, so occasionally there is nothing that can be done.
