Mac Users: When working with EndNote on a Mac, you must use Mozilla Firefox as your browser to enable Direct Export (automatic downloads) of references from electronic databases (PubMed, Web of Science, etc.) to your EndNote library.
Note: You cannot download multiple citations at one time in Google Scholar. If you anticipate downloading a large number of citations, try using the library's databases first.
- Go to Google Scholar at UNC. We recommend that you access Google Scholar from this link, or any UNC-CH library page, so that you can link to full-text journal articles.
- Click on the Google Scholar icon on the right side of the search box. This will take you to the Google Scholar homepage.
- Click on the Settings icon in the upper right hand corner of the screen.
- Scroll down to the Bibliography manager section. Select the Show links to import citations into radio button. Choose Endnote from the dropdown menu.
- Click Save. You will not need to perform this step on subsequent visits to Google Scholar.
- Conduct a search in Google Scholar. Click Import into Endnote link under the citation you wish to import to your EndNote library.
- A dialog box will appear prompting you to either "Open" or "Save" the file that you are creating.
- Choose the Open with radio button and select EndNote X7 from the drop-down menu. If you do not see EndNote X7 on the dropdown shortlist, select Other and choose EndNote X7 from the options provided. Then, click OK.
- Your citations will automatically appear in your EndNote library. If you do not already have EndNote open, your computer will open your EndNote library.
Important: Check all citations for accuracy prior to sorting into groups.
