Instructions for exporting citations from Google Scholar to EndNote
- Before conducting your first search, click Settings in the upper right-hand corner of the Google Scholar home screen (access Google Scholar while signed in to the library for better search results).
- Scroll to the bottom of the Scholar Settings screen and, under the Bibliography manager heading, use the drop-down menu to select EndNote in the Show links to import citations into field (illustrated below), then click Save.
- Now conduct your search.
- Google Scholar will only export one citation at a time. Complete the export by simply clicking Import into EndNote from the blue options under each listing.
Some browsers may ask you to choose a helper application.
- Check Open with then click Browse.
- This will open a second box (the Choose Helper Application box). Select EndNote.
- Click OK to both boxes when finished.
- You can also check Do this automatically for files like this from now on, to save time in the future.
If citations fail to export, also check for pop-up blockers (which may appear as a banner notice along the top or bottom of your screen). Citation also will not export if you have a reference open in EndNote. (To be sure you do not have a reference open, in EndNote, click on All References.)
