Place a check next to each record you wish to select.

Then you can export citations to your bibliographic software by clicking the Export button.


RefWorks, EndNote, or Mendeley:

  • Choose your citation manager from the drop-down menu and click Go.
  • Click the Continue with Export link—this will open a new window for your citation manager software.
  • If you are not already logged in to the citation management site, you will need to do so to proceed.
  • Your citations will be automatically imported.


Other reference software (to export to other bibliographic software, e.g., Zotero):

  • Choose Reference Software from the drop-down menu and click Go.
    • This creates a .ris file (the standard format for bibliographic software).
    • Note that some bibliographic software can be automatically set to detect this type of file extension and will automatically upload your files at this point.
  • A dialog box will prompt you to open or save the file.
    • If you select open, you will need to browse/select your bibliographic software program and proceed to open the file.
    • If you select save, you can save the file and then upload this file to your preferred bibliographic software.

You cannot currently export citations from the PsycEXTRA or PsycTESTS databases.
