There are currently seven citation styles to choose from when exporting your source details. These include:
To generate a source citation from your list of search results, click the three-dot icon located in the top right of each brief record.
Clicking the three-dot icon will reveal a number of citation style and management options pictured in the following image.
Choose the "Citation" option, select your preferred citation style, and copy the citation into your reference list.
In addition to copying and pasting your citation, you can also export this information as an RIS file by selecting the Export RIS option from the same menu. RIS is a bibliographic citation file saved in a format developed by Research Information Systems or RIS. This file can be imported into citation managers like RefWorks, Zotero and EndNote.
Visit the page Which citation management program should I use? for a description of some of the most popular options.
LibrarySearch also supports citation exporting in groups of two or more. To export more than one citation at a time, save your sources to My Favourites. Then select each item you would like to export individually by placing a check mark to the left of the record or create a group by choosing one of your labels from the right side as highlighted in the following image.
Next, locate the three-dot icon to access your export options.
Then choose Export Citation (RIS).
Finally, bypass the "encoding" feature (unless you have a preferred electronic standard) and select Download. The Download option will save your group of citations in the RIS format in the location you choose. If you are not able to find the file, check your computer's Downloads folder.
