The EndNote Online direct export plug-in makes it easy to export references directly into your EndNote library from databases. The plug-in will be installed on centrally managed PC labs and should be part of the EndNote desktop default installation.
If needed, you can download it from EndNote Online ->Downloads. You need to choose to open files rather than save.
Instructions may vary from database to database but generally you will:
If your resutls cannot be directly exported into EndNote, you can save your results as a .ris or .txt file and import the file into your EndNote library.
Your chosen results will now appear in your EndNote library.
The EndNote Bookmarklet Tool (Capture Reference) scans the bibliographic information presented on a webpage and creates a reference which you can save in either EndNote online or EndNote desktop. This is a particularly useful tool for those journal sites or webpages which do not offer a direct export option on screen.
The Capture Reference bookmarklet can be found on EndNote online under Downloads.
Note: Multiple authors will be listed on one line - after you've imported your captured reference(s) you'll need to edit the author field and ensure each name is on a separate line and displays correctly (either first name last name OR last name, first name). Also, ensure the Reference Type has been picked up correctly - you can change this before you import or afterwards.
You can references to an Excel spreadsheet by following the instructions in this article:
You can add references manually to EndNote by choosing File > New Reference or by using the New References button. Remember to choose the Reference Type (e.g. book) and to enter each author on a new line.
Some databases have an EndNote button (e.g. Web of Science) or direct export option (e.g. EBSCOhost databases) that allows you to directly export references to your EndNote library.
You can import a single PDF or folder of existing PDFs into EndNote and EndNote will create references from them if possible.
If you have a large number of PDFs the import process may take some time.
Please note this feature is dependent on each PDF including full DOI information.
Where the process has been successful you will see your PDFs attached to automatically-generated references. Where the process hasn't worked (as in the top two references pictured below) your PDF will be attached to an empty record. You will need to double-click to open this record and type in the details manually.
After importing references into EndNote you may not want to keep them all - you may decide some aren't relevant, etc.
To remove a reference:
Highlight > right click > Move references to trash
EndNote can automatically locate and download full text files by accessing several sources, including: DOI (Digital Object Identifier), PubMed LinkOut, and ISI Web of Science Full Text Links. You will need to set up full text preferences first. It is also important that you select a single reference or group of references rather than the whole Library, to avoid triggering a publisher block due to excessive downloading.
