Q. How to import citations from Google Scholar to EndNote?

Can Google Scholar offer a direct link for importing citations into EndNote?


Yes, the "Import to EndNote" link can appear next to each search result on the search results page.

Clicking on this link will download an ".enw" file.

When you open this file, it will automatically open EndNote and add the citation to your currently open EndNote Library.


If you do not see "Import to EndNote":

1. Go to Google Scholar's homepage.

2. Click on the "hamburger menu" (3 parallel horizontal lines icon).

3. Choose "Settings".

4. On the first page of the settings (Search results) go to "Bibliography manager" and tick the second option (Show links to import citations into...)

5. Click on the box next to this option, and change it to EndNote.

6. Save the settings.

From now on, when you search Google Scholar you will be able see the EndNote option for each result. 

If you want to export to a different format occasionally, you will need to use this process and select that format instead of EndNote.
