How do I put journal terms lists into EndNote

Term lists are lists that match journal names to their abbreviations. This is a useful thing to have because sometimes when you download EndNote references you get abbreviated journal titles and want to expand them. Additionally you might be publishing somewhere that wants abbreviated journal titles in the reference list, but you only have the long form. Term lists will help you cope with both of these problems.

Traditionally getting term lists involved importing lists from documents on the internet but now EndNote makes all this stuff available from the software.

This is how you get them:

Step 1 - In the EndNote software go to Tools>term lists

The first thing you'll see is a list of any journal articles in your library that have a matching term in a list in EndNote.

Step 2: If you want to import term lists into EndNote click the lists button at the top of the term lists window, then select journal titles. You'll now be presented with a field of study you'd like to import your term lists from

Double click on the field of study that is right for you and boom! You're done.

 

Thanks!
