References from many different databases and reference management programs can be imported into DiVA. This is recommended when several publications need to be registered at once.
The following reference formats can be used: PubMed XML, ISI, EndNote XML, MODS v.3, BibTex, BibLatex and RIS.
The University library imports new publications from the Web of Science (ISI) database to DiVA on a weekly basis.
Search references in a database (e.g. PubMed, Web of Science, Scopus, Libris) or a reference management program (e.g. EndNote) and save the results as a file on your computer.
