EndNote Tutorials: How to Import References from Databases?

When you work with EndNote, it means you need to make your citation process easy. One expectation and amazing function with using EndNote is the ability to import citations and references from different databases such as google scholar, PubMed. Web of Science, Scopus, CINAH, and PsycINFO. Today, we are going to guide you through that.

How to Import References from New PubMed into EndNote?

The new PubMed is now available. It is an updated version of the legacy PubMed. Below are the instructions on how to export references from New PubMed to EndNote. Please be aware that the following steps were based on the Chrome web browser.

  • Connect to PubMed with the Rutgers specific link.
  • Perform a search. 
  • On the top of the search results page, you have three options to work with the search results: Save, Email, Send To. To export to EndNote, you need to choose Send To. 
  • Then click Citation Manager.
  • Choose All results on the page, or All results, or Selection (whichever option that suits your needs) to export. Note, in New PubMed, you don’t choose the # of references to display in a pull-down menu. Instead, you can display more references on the page by clicking Show more at the bottom of the screen. When choosing All results, you may export up to 10,000 references at once in New PubMed.
  • Click the Create file blue button.  
  • A NBIB Formatted File (PubMed) (.nbib) will be saved in your local drive and shown at the lower left corner of the screen. Clicking the file will automatically place all the exported references in your pre-chosen EndNote library. If you did not choose one, the default EndNote library will be the one you last worked with. So it is important that you make sure you have the right EndNote library ready before exporting.
