How do I extract references from an article?

To extract the references, Scholarcy usually needs access to the full text of the article or chapter, unless the publisher has made the references openly available with the abstract. Otherwise, the article/chapter needs to be open access, or you need to upload the PDF directly, if you have legitimate access to it.

Reference extraction is available within the Chrome Extension, if you are logged into your Scholarcy account, or within Scholarcy Library. Within the summary flashcard for the article, click the download button in the References tab to download them as either a RIS or BibTeX.

Reference extraction is also available via our API, and via our browser bookmarklets which you can install from our Labs page.
