Citation Exporter Feature Now Available

PMC is happy to announce the addition of a citation exporter feature. This feature makes it
easy to retrieve either styled citations that you can copy/paste into your manuscripts, or
to download them into a format compatible with your bibliographic reference manager
software.

When viewing an Entrez search results page, each result summary will now include a
“Citation” link. When, clicked, this will open a pop-up window that you can use to easily
copy/paste citations formatted in one of three popular styles: AMA (American Medical
Association), MLA (Modern Language Association), or APA (American Psychological
Association). In addition, the box has links at the bottom that can be used to download the
citation information in one of three machine-readable formats, which most bibliographic
reference management software can import.

The same citation box can also be invoked from an individual article, either in classic
view (with the “Citation” link among the list of formats) or the PubReader view, by clicking
on the citation information just below the article title in the banner.

These human-readable styled citations, and machine-readable formats, will be available
through a public API, and we will be providing more details about that in another
announcement, on the pmc-utils-announce
mailing list
. Please subscribe to that list if you are interested.
