FHI Workshop on Reference Management Systems

Online Workshop on Reference Management Systems
Friday, 29 May 2020 – 10:15 am

This course explains what reference management systems (also known as bibliographic or citation management software) are, why they are useful for any kind of research, and what to look out for when considering the use of one of the numerous available bibliographic management applications. The two systems, EndNote and Mendeley, are demonstrated as examples.

Importing References from Google Scholar

How to import references from Google Scholar to your reference management system?

You need to configure the Google Scholar settings (in the upper left-hand or right-hand corner). Under “Bibliography Manager” select the option “Show links to import citations into” and choose your desired format (e.g. BibTeX, EndNote) in the drop down box.

Then the “Import into BibTeX/EndNote” link will appear in Google Scholar and you will be able to send references directly to your reference management system.

New EndNote Version: X9

Some new features in EndNote X9:

  • Sharing your complete library with read-only or read-write access rights within EndNote desktop
  • Sharing custom groups with other EndNote users
