Regardless of the style you choose to use, references will generally require a selection of the following components:
Author(s) / Editor(s)
Place of publication
Year of publication
Volume number, issue number/month
Electronic and specialist materials may have additional referencing components e.g. the URL and date accessed for websites.
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. The Internet Explorer plug-in will work with Google Chrome. and Edge. 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 online, you can save your results as a .ris file and import the file into your EndNote library.
References can be added to EndNote online in various ways.
Using the Collect tab you can manually enter reference details by clicking on New Reference.
Try adding this Journal Article reference (note, each author’s name must be added on a new line):
Spring, H and Adams, R. (2013) 'Learning and Teaching in Action'. Health Information and Libraries Journal 30 (4), pp.337-342.
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.
References can be pushed directly from SUPrimo into EndNote Online.
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.
