EndNote X7 Essential Training #2: Importing References

This video demonstrates the process of importing references to EndNote from bibliographic databases, such as PubMed, Ovid MEDLINE, the Web of Science, Scopus, CINHAL and Google Scholar. I also demonstrate how to import book references from catalogs such as Yale's Quicksearch and WorldCat, and how to convert a book reference into a book chapter reference. Finally I demonstrate how to "group edit" imported reference to add additional information to them.


Adding Known Articles to EndNote

This tutorial demonstrates how to add the reference of a known article into your EndNote library via the PubMed connection file from within EndNote. Again, this is best if you have a stack of known articles and need to quickly enter their references into EndNote. This is not recommended if you do not have known articles and need to do subject searches. In that case, you can do your searches in PubMed directly and import the search results into EndNote. This tutorial uses EndNote X4 in the demo.


Creating Custom Import Filters and Connection Files in EndNote

You can modify the import filters and connections files that ship with EndNote to make it work better for you. This tutorial demonstrates how to do that using the PubMed import filter and connection file as examples. Please note that the examples used in this video only apply to new, empty EndNote libraries, EndNote libraries with an empty journal term list, or EndNote libraries with a clean, full journal term list that ships with EndNote. If you have been managing an EndNote library for a long time, you will need to clean up your existing journal term list before following the examples in the video.


Managing PDFs with EndNote

This tutorial demonstrates EndNote's PDF management features: how to attach PDFs to references, how to create sticky note comments and text highlights in PDFs, how to search full text PDFs, and how to import existing PDFs and have EndNote find citation information automatically.


Sharing Your EndNote References via EndNote Web

EndNote Web is another citation management product by Thomson Reuters ISI. It is web-based and has most of the commonly-used functions of the desktop EndNote. It is also integrated into the desktop EndNote so that you can transfer references between desktop EndNote and EndNote Web, and share them via EndNote Web. This tutorial demonstrates how to transfer your desktop EndNote references to EndNote Web and share them with other EndNote Web users. EndNote X6 brings "syncing" feature, which we will take a look at in another video.


Customizing EndNote

This tutorial demonstrates a number of ways to customize EndNote X4 to make it work better for you, such as how to customize the style list, the import filter list, the connection file list, and the display fields of the references. This tutorial uses EndNote X4 in the demo.
