PubMed Citation Manager Shortcut for Chrome
More About PubMed Citation Manager Shortcut
The PubMed Citation Manager Shortcut quickens the process of generating a citation file (.nbib) in PubMed and reduces extraneous clicking. Simply select the citations you want to keep using the check boxes in PubMed, then click the PubMed Citation Manager Shortcut icon to generate the citation file.
If no citations are selected, the PubMed Citation Manager Shortcut will send the entire search to file for searches up to 500 results. For searches with more than 500 results, you must first make a selection.
Once generated, the .nbib file can be uploaded to the citation manager of your choice.
With version 1.21, the Citation Manager Shortcut is now optimized to work with the PubMed clipboard. A clipboard shortcut icon will now appear on search results and citation record pages. In the search results, the clipboard icon will appear at the top and bottom of each page. Simply select citations with the checkboxes and click the clipboard to add these results to your PubMed Clipboard. If you don't make any selections, all citations up to the 500 limit will be added to the PubMed Clipboard. You can then navigate to the PubMed Clipboard using the link in the upper right part of the screen, and then click on the main Citation Manager Shortcut icon to send citations to the .nbib file -- no need to worry about specifying a number of citations to send from the Clipboard, as they'll all be sent!
With the addition of the clipboard shortcuts, it should now be easy to perform multiple searches on a topic in PubMed, quickly save selected results from each search to the clipboard, and then export the clipped results to file with a single click of the extension icon, making for a more efficient research process.
