Help Topic: Export citation

This feature allows you either to download citations to your desktop to use with your bibliographic software or to email them to a colleague.

You can export citations from a number of different places within Cambridge Journals Online:

1. The table of contents for the journal issue you are interested in. Having located the relevant article(s) check the box next to it/them. Then click the 'Export Citation(s)' button which you will find at both the top and the bottom of the table of contents. This is a particularly useful method if you want to download a number of different citations from within the same journal issue.

2. The list of results produced by running a search. Follow the same procedure as described above.

3. The abstract of the article you are interested in. Go to the 'Article Menu' on the left-hand side of the page and under 'Options' click the 'Export Citation' link at the top of the page.

4. The HTML version of the article itself also has an 'Export Citation' link under the 'Article Menu' on the left-hand side of the page. (You can only access this if you or your library subscribes to the journal and the journal is available in HTML.)

Clicking on 'Export Citation' in any of these places will bring up a new page.

First choose whether to export just the citation or the citation plus the abstract.

Then choose the format you prefer by clicking on the corresponding radio button. You can choose from a number of different formats depending on what you want to do with the citation. If you are using specialist reference management software you can choose downloads that are compatible with: Biblioscape, BibTex, EndNote, Medlars, Papyrus, ProCite, Reference Manager and RefWorks. Or you can choose to export as ASCII plain text, CSV, RIS or HTML.

RefWorks direct export is also available. If you choose this option and you are already logged into RefWorks, the citations are imported immediately and can be viewed. If your RefWorks application is not running, it will be started in a new browser window or tab and you will be prompted to log in.

To email the citation, enter your colleague's email address into the first input field followed by your name, your email address and any accompanying message you wish to send, then click 'Email' at the bottom of the page. To download the citation to your computer, leave these input fields empty and click 'Download' at the bottom of the page. A 'File Download' dialogue box will appear and ask you to save the file to your computer.
