Using Europe PMC’s export options as research funder

Recently Europe PMC released new export format options, to help users get Europe PMC’s wealth of metadata (and our open access papers) into the file formats they like to use.


We’ve already posted about how useful this function is for researchers, but it’s great for research funders too. Funders can convert their carefully constructed search into a tab separated file and use Excel to manipulate the metadata as they wish.



Funders can find out how many papers acknowledging their funding have been made open access, what research areas papers are being published in, or which grants papers are linked to, among other things!

New export options now available: use Europe PMC to populate your bibliographic references in EndNote, Reference Manager etc.

Europe PMC has released new export format options, indicated in the image below:



The RIS export format is typically used by Reference Manager and EndNote bibliographic applications for example, so you can now easily import Europe PMC citations.

You can also email citations to yourself, or others, by selecting this destination option from the Export menu and filling in the required address fields.

Identifying articles and populating your reference list now just got easier using Europe PMC.
