Exporting references and opening articles/citations

Publish or Perish can export the full bibliographic details of any of the results in eleven different styles, a handy shortcut if you need the full reference of an article or if you would like to copy all your own publications into a CV. Different data sources have different capabilities in this respect.

Data source Most common problems
Crossref Exports full bibliographic details of references including article DOI.
Google Scholar (GS)
Google Scholar Profile (GSP)
  • References are more complete than raw GS data, but might still have occasional missing elements.

Web of Science Exports full bibliographic details of references including DOI and journal ISSN.
