Importing Citations into EndNote

Need to get references into EndNote and not sure how? Try these tips:

  • Import articles from PubMed by using the "Send to" feature. If needed, see instructions for a PC or for a Mac.
  • Import articles from Google Scholar by simply changing your Google Scholar settings. Within your settings, go to Bibliograpy Manager and select the second radio button for "Show links to import citations into" and select EndNote. Then click Save. You'll then see an option to import into EndNote when you are viewing Google Scholar results.
  • Import articles from Ebsco databases (CINAHL, PsycINFO, etc.), Embase, Ovid, or the Cochrane Library by following the instructions in our "Importing Citations into EndNote" tipsheet.
  • Import books from WorldCat. To do so, search for the title, click on the record you need, and then click the "Cite/Export" button. Next, select the "Export to EndNote / Reference Manager" option.
  • Import webpages by using the EndNote Web Capture button or the Capture Reference bookmarklet. Note that EndNote can only capture content from select sources.¬†
