EndNote X8 is available at UNMC

EndNote X8 is now available to UNMC faculty, staff, and students and IDeA grant-supported investigators from institutions outside of UNMC under an academic site license. At this time, we are inviting all faculty who wish to upgrade to X8, and all faculty or researchers who write collaboratively with EndNote users to request EndNote.  EndNote at UNMC is provided by the Nebraska INBRE grant, a complete cost partner, via the NIH IDeA award: Nebraska Research Network in Functional Genomics. EndNote is managed by the McGoogan Library of Medicine at UNMC.

Google Scholar Result Export to RefWorks, EndNote, Zotero, and others

If you use a citation manager like RefWorks, EndNote or Zotero; saving a Google Scholar search result in your citation manager’s database is as simple as clicking a link. Getting the needed links to appear in your search results takes a little bit of work, however.

To get an “import” link to appear in each Google Scholar search result:

Go to Google Scholar  http://scholar.google.com

Click on the “menu” icon (three, stacked, horizontal lines)

 

 

 

 

 

Find and click on the “Settings”/”Cogwheel” icon. The cogwheel may be at the bottom of the list of options or above the other options.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Use the “Bibliography manager” drop-down to make the appropriate selection.

If you are using Zotero or Mendeley, select the “RefMan” option which will produce a RIS-format file.  Zotero preferences can be set to automatically import any downloaded RIS files.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Click the “Save” button.

Conduct a Google Scholar search.

An “Import into Refworks,” “Import into RefMan,” or “Import into EndNote” link will be present under each Google Scholar search result.  You can either click this link, or, if you want a citation manager record that is unlikely to need editing, follow the instructions below to import a record from PubMed.

 

 

 

 

 

If you want to import a record from PubMed that is unlikely to require editing:

Click the “All ___ versions” link.

Google Scholar aggregates all sources for a search result in one “hit” or search result.   If you look at the screenshot above, you’ll see that 16 different websites provided   this search result (see dotted arrow.  A PubMed record for this article is probably one of the 16 sources.

When you reach the page showing the different versions of the search result, look for a “version” that was retrieved from “nlm.nih.gov” (see red underline in screenshot below). This is the PubMed version.  Click on the “Import into ______” link under this version of the search result.
