There are a number of ways to transform citations into BibTeX format. Some are described in supporting documentation provided by the Faculty Success platform. There are a number of other web-based tool options available, outlined below.
Faculty Success provides documentation to support users who need to generate a BibTeX file from various platforms listed on their Publication Import screen.
Their documentation can be accessed by clicking the question mark next to Import from a BibTeX file on the publication import screen in Faculty Success: Additional instructions and how-to videos for the import process with these tools are provided below, based on our experiences here at the University of Maryland in using these tools.
Many Faculty Success users will have much of the needed publication information saved in a bibliography of some kind, such as your CV. Several tools exist that will attempt to parse a formatted text bibliography into the BibTeX format. These are somewhat experimental, but may be worth trying:
If you are on a Mac, TextEdit will by default save any file as a Rich Text File (.rtf) which will not work for import into Faculty Success. You will have to switch to plain text by going to TextEdit > Preferences and selecting Plain Text under Format. You can then paste in the Google Scholar bibtex output and save as .txt.
