I have trouble importing google scholar entries into the JabRef database.

  1. I search for papers via the google scholar search window and select entries for the import
  2. the newly open inspection inspection window is empty!!

I use JabRef version 3.5 on Windows 10.

Any ideas? Regards!

  • This was genuinely useful to me as I encountered the same bug, and the JabRef website points us here for help with it, perhaps this should be moved to stackoverflow since it's a bug with the application and not latex specific? Aug 8, 2016 at 19:03

Indeed, there is a bug regarding the Google Scholar search in JabRef 3.5. See: https://github.com/JabRef/jabref/issues/1639

This bug should be fixed in the development version, which you can find here: http://builds.jabref.org/master/
