I also experienced the same problem these day.  Now I just can use endnote to search the reference for citation. It bothers me very much.

I'm having the same problem. Why is Google Scholar negating one of the most useful features of its own product??? It's absurd.

Yes I have been blocked from downloading citation to endnote. This has never happened in my 5 years as a RESEARCHER. Is google team doing something to fix this?

same here. Please provide a solution! I did everything I could like deleting cache, history and reinstall chrome app. Still same and frustrated.

Same problem. This basically makes google scholar unusable for doing research, which seems like a pretty terrible decision for google to make if they want google scholar to be used by researchers. I click through a captcha to show I'm not a robot and it still blocks me from downloading the citation.

~edit~

I found that if you "star" the citation you want, then go to your google scholar library, you can download the citation to your reference manager from there. My interpretation is that google is trying to force people to switch to using their schloar libarary instead of programs like endnote.

I also have the same problem with getting these citations from Google Scholar, either with the Zotero plug-in or EndNotes and the other ones... What could I do?

Same here. Performing CAPTCHA doesn't help. No reply from support. We have to get rid of this Google dependency!!!

Guys this issue mostly occurs when we use google scholar heavily for a longer period without any break. Try to do your work in portions on daily basis. Secondly, you can use Zotero software to get references. I am facing the same issue but able to get my references through Zotero.

What 9 character I don't know Tell me simplicities google

If you want to use Zotero, simple download it and add its button to your browser. Then open your citing material and click on Zotero button. Also, add Zotero to your WORD through add-in. Still, if you face any issue I will help you

Same problem here in Boone, NC. We're a college town with 19k students. I imagine faculty and students heavy use of Google Scholar is they regularly blocking Spectrum IP addresses.

Thank you mate, you are a life saver!! :) As Trevor mentioned, please "star" the citation you want, then go to your google scholar library, and download the citation to your reference manager from there.

i think their algorithm for detecting bot behavior is just not working very well

i've found that going into the private browser mode helps resolve the issue
