Exporting References from SpringerLink

Note that this process is easiest if you are using Firefox with the extension installed and pop-up blocker disabled.

 

Run your search in Springer.  Click on the article title (reference) you would like to save to your EndNote Basic account.

Please note that Google Scholar allows exporting only one reference at a time.


 


 Select Download: click on the Reference Manager (RIS).

 


If the ResearchSoft Direct Export Helper is present, try choosing that option, since it functions as a direct export. Check that the Open with button is selected, and click OK

 

If your computer's settings are optimal, you will be prompted to log in to your EndNote Basic account. Your references will export directly into your EndNote Basic account.
* Tips: Keep exporting references until you're done, then go to EndNote Basic and add them to a group.

Note: If you are prmpted a pop-up box for "Choose Destination" instead of EndNote Web Login, skip to step # 12.


Open a new tab in your browser and click on the EndNote button on the top left side of the screen to log in to your EndNote Basic account.

Click on [Unfiled] to display the references that you have saved. Check off the boxes located to the left of the references you would like to add to a group. Select an existing group or create a new group.


 Your references should be saved to the specified group.


Step # 12

If your references do not export directly, a pop-up box for "Choose Destination" will appear. In that case, instead of choosing Open with, select Save file and click OK. The reference file will probably be saved in your computer's Downloads folder.


Open a new tab in your browser and click on the EndNote button on the top left side of the screen to log in to your EndNote Basic account.

Select the Collect tab and click on Import References. Browse and select the reference file you saved earlier (probably in your Downloads folder). 


Select SpringerLink as your Import Option.  If SpringerLink does not appear in your drop-down box, you may need to click on Select Favorites and add it to your Favorites list first.  Select a new group (or an existing group) for these references, enter a New Group name, click OK and click Import.


Your references should be saved to the specified group.
