In order to do this you’ll need to download a browser plug-in from your EndNote Web account.

1. Log in to your EndNote Web (EndNote Online) account.

2. Access the Downloads menu.

3. Select either the Download Windows MSI or Download Macintosh option.

4. Once you have downloaded the installer, open it. The installer will search for "installed applications". This may take a minute or two.

5. Follow the prompts until you get to the "Select Features" section. If you already have EndNote installed on your computer, do not install the "Cite While You Write" files offered (you can avoid re-installing by clicking the drop down arrow next to the Cite While You Write option and selecting. "Entire feature will be unavailable"). Keep following the prompts until the installation is complete.

Note: The plug-in only works with Chrome, IE, and Microsoft Edge (not Firefox). You can export references from Google Scholar, PubMed and as well as subscription databases, however the file format you download must be an .RIS file. In Scholar this would mean using the "RefMan" format option. Note also that you should choose 'Save' rather than 'Open' when you download the .RIS file.

See the link below for a video demonstrating the plugin download and reference export process with Google Scholar.
