Most journal databases include a download option that allows the export of records from the database to an EndNote Library. This is called ‘direct export’.
Direct export generally involves the following 3 steps:
If an EndNote Library is open, records will be imported there. Otherwise, locate the EndNote Library as part of the direct export process.
Some databases do not provide a direct export option - instead you may need to use Endnote's Import process.
This process uses import filters - most filters are supplied with EndNote, or can be downloaded from the EndNote Import Filters site.
The process of transferring records from a database into EndNote differs slightly for each database and web browser used. Check the instructions below for further details.
