EndNote

This guide will be useful as a resource for working with EndNote desktop App and EndNote Web.

EndNote 20

EndNote (desktop version) ) is a tool for managing and citing references in papers and creating bibliographies. EndNote Online (Web) is a web-based platform that complements EndNote desktop nicely.  

  1. Collect references from electronic and traditional sources.
  2. Organize your references for your research topics and papers.
  3. Create a formatted bibliography for your paper or cite references while you write.

Create your EndNote account online.

Then use the materials to learn both EndNote and EndNote Online. 

To Export from EndNote Web to Mendeley

First open your EndNote Web account. Click on the format tab, then Export Reference. Use the dropdown menu to select the references you want to export. Now use the export style dropdown menu to select RefMan (RIS) export. Now click on the Preview & Print button.

This will open a popup window that has the citations in RIS format. You will then need to right click on the mouse to get to the "save as" tool. Click on save as, and a save as window will popup. See next figure.

Now you must save this file as a .ris file. To do this, change the .html to .ris. Make sure you give it a name you can remember and put it someplace where you can find it. I usually label mine as endnote citations.ris and put it on the desktop of my computer.
