Exporting a citation from Google Scholar and then importing it into Pure.

(If you are not signed in to Google then when you click on the star, you will be prompted to log in. If you don’t have a Google account, click here to create one.)

3. Select all the articles by checking the box on the upper left side of the screen

4. Click the export icon on the horizontal menu bar at the top of the screen.

2. Select Import from File again from the pull down menu and a pop-up window will open.

3. Select BibTex, then you will be prompted to browse for the file.

4. Select your BibTex file – created by copying the GoogleScholar BibTex screen into NotePad and saving the file as .txt
