Save PubMed Data in CSV Format

You can now save PubMed® data in Comma-Separated Values (CSV) formatted files. CSV files are used to easily import data into databases and spreadsheets.

To save PubMed data in CSV format, use Send to File (see Figure 1). Under Format, select CSV and click Create File. Save the file on your computer. You can import the saved file into other software programs.

See PubMed Help for more information about saving citations as a text file.
