Direct Export from Google Scholar to EndNote or EndNote Online: Windows

Direct Export from Google Scholar
to EndNote or EndNote Online:
Windows Google Scholar records can be imported
into either EndNote on the desktop or EndNote online, if you install the
EndNote plug-in for Internet Explorer. Installing this plug-in will enable direct export to
EndNote online for the Internet Explorer,
Google Chrome, or Microsoft Edge browsers. This plug-in will not work with Firefox. For this example, I am using Chrome
and it is set as my default browser. In EndNote, select EndNote
online from the Help menu. This will take you to the EndNote online log-in
screen, if you are not already logged in. Log into your EndNote online account. Click the Downloads tab. I want to download a file I can use to
install the plug-in on multiple computers, so I select the Download Windows MSI option. When the file has downloaded, locate it
on your computer and double-click on it. The installer will show a message that
it is searching for installed applications. This may take some time. When it has finished searching,
click the Next button. Enter your personal information. Click the Next button. Then click the Next button again, unless your school or company has told
you they use a special configuration. Click Next in the Select Destination window. If EndNote is installed on your computer,
do not install the Cite While You Write files. They are already included in EndNote. Click the Next button and
continue clicking Next whenever the installation
pauses to require it. When the installation is complete,
click the Finish button. In Google Scholar, click the Options button. Click the Settings button. Here you can change the number of
results per page and other options. Set the Bibliography Manager to Show
links to import citations into RefMan. This will allow references to be
imported into EndNote online, as well as EndNote on the desktop. Click the Save button. Perform your search in Google Scholar
and set your preferred options. To import a reference, click the Import
into RefMan link under the reference. What happens next may vary
depending on your browser. In Chrome, click the
small arrow next to the
downloaded citation file, at the bottom-left
corner of the screen. Select the Open option
to open just this file, or Always open files of this type, if you want Google Scholar files
automatically opened in the future. Because the plug-in is installed, you can
choose to send the reference to your EndNote
desktop library or to your EndNote online library. For this reference I select EndNote
online, then click the OK button. I fill in my EndNote online logon credentials, if I am not already logged in,
then click the OK button. Click OK when you see the
confirmation message. The reference will appear in the
Unfiled group in EndNote online. To import a reference to EndNote on
the desktop, click Import into RefMan. Click the small arrow by
the downloaded citation
file, then Open. Choose EndNote as the destination. Click the OK button. The reference will appear in
the Imported References group. Google Scholar references are incomplete,
missing the abstract, DOI, and more. For many references, EndNote can find
this missing information and update it. This feature is only available on the desktop. Select the reference in the list. Select Find Reference Updates
from the References menu. If a match for the reference is found, EndNote will display the reference
found online in the left of this window, and the reference in the
EndNote library on the right. Choose Update Empty Fields to fill in
only the blanks in the original record, or Update All Fields to overwrite all the fields in
the original record with the data found online. The data found online will come from
either PubMed or the Web of Science, both professional databases with reliable data. Click the OK button. You will now see complete
data in your EndNote record.

    Can you please provide a transcript so that people with hearing disabilities can follow along. The quality of the recording and content is good, but that robot voice is terribly distracting. Given a choice between it and reading captions or transcript, I would prefer the captions or transcript.


    Can I achieve direct export if I am on a trial version of End Note ?
