Google Scholar Profiles & Other Resources that Support BibTeX

Create a Google Scholar Citations Profile

You can create a Google Scholar Citations profile and associate your publications from Google Scholar to your profile.  Once you've done this, you can reference your Google Profile URL under the "Websites" option on your ORCID profile.  In addition, you can import citations from Google Scholar to your ORCID profile.

  1. Login to your Google account or create one. If creating your Google account for the first time, use a  personal e-mail account instead of an account with an employer so you can keep your profile no matter where you are employed.
  2. Use the Citations sign-up form to complete information in your profile.  At this point you can also provide your university e-mail address, which will make your profile eligible for inclusion in Google Scholar search results.
  3. On the next page, you'll see groups of articles written by people with names similar to yours.  To add articles to your profile do one of the following:
    • Click "Add all articles" next to each article group that is yours.
    • Click "See all articles" to add specific articles from a group.
    • Click "Search all articles" to perform a Google Scholar search and then add your articles one at a time.
  4. Review the information on the Google Scholar Citations set-up page for more information.

Export Google Scholar Citations

  1. Go to Google Scholar and click on the "My citations" link.  If you are not currently logged in to Google Scholar, you'll need to do so.
  2. Click in the check box to the left of each citation that you want to import into your ORCID profile.
  3. Click on the "Export" button and select the "BibTeX" format.
  4. This action will generate a "citations.bib" file that will be saved on your computer.  Make sure you know where this file is located.

Import Google Scholar Citations to Your ORCID Profile

  1. Login to your ORCID profile.
  2. Scroll down to the "Works" section, mouse over the "Add works" option, and click on the "Import BibTeX" option.
  3. A "Link BibTex" option will display; click on the "Choose File" button.
  4. Navigate to the "citations.bib" file, and double click on it.  The citations will appear in the "Link BibTeX" location.
  5. Click on the "Save" icon to add each citation to your profile or the "Ignore" icon to ignore citations you do not want to add to your profile.
  6. For each citation added, complete the "Add Work" form (if necessary) and then click on the "Add to List" button.
