Exporting Data

Exporting a folder is when you create a copy of the records in that folder in a machine readable format (Bib Tex, CSV or RIS) that are downloaded from the manager to your computer (or uploaded and sent in an email), to be imported and added to another reference manager.

To Export a Folder:

1) Highlight the folder of interest (by selecting it)

2) Right click your mouse to open the Options menu

3) Scroll down & select Export Collection

4) Select the required Export Format (for your destination ref manager) & click OK

5) Select your destination folder in Z Export (suggestion: Downloads or Documents are good destinations)

6) Click Save 2x
