How can I get citation information from articles in Google Scholar?


In order to get citation information from articles found using Google Scholar (, enter your search terms and hit the search key.

From the search results page, click on the quotation marks under the article's listing (see below):

A box that looks like the one below will appear. From there, you can copy and paste the citation in MLA, APA,  Chicago, Harvard, or Vancouver, or you can click on one of the options beneath to import the citation into BibTeX, EndNote, RefMan, or RefWorks.


In RefWorks, you can also use the "Save to RefWorks" bookmarklet to capture multiple citations from Google Scholar. For more information on "Save to RefWorks", visit this FAQ.

  1. Is it still like this (Feb/28), cause I can't see the cite link in my Scholar. I see only "Cited by" "Related articles" "All versions"..

  2. Thanks for your comment! It looks like the "Cite" link has been changed to quotation marks. I have updated this FAQ entry with the new information.

  3. Vancouver style stopped appearing on the list after I had to uninstall Firefox. Is there any way I can get it back?

  4. Thank you for your comment! I am still seeing Vancouver in both Chrome and Firefox. Maybe try refreshing or in another browser?
