How to Export your Publications from Google Scholar for your Academic Website

A quick video and instructions to help you import your publications into you academic website. Google Scholar will export your publications list in BibTeX format. This method uses an online convertor to convert the BibTeX format into one of several standard reference list formats, such as APA, which you can then paste into your Publications web page. This is one of several ways to get your publications onto your website in a clean format.

People often try to paste their publications directly from their CV into their webpage, but the formatting of a typical CV, which often includes Tabs or Tables, does not work well in a web page.
