Use Direct Export.

Most of the major journal databases allow you to Direct Export many references at once into EndNote electronically. Follow the instructions for the various databases on our Direct Export Handout. This sheet has a list of databases from which you can Direct Export into EndNote. Macintosh users should drag the link to your desktop and open it from there.

For some databases Direct Export is not possible. In such cases you must use EndNote Filters to get references into EndNote from these databases.

Macintosh users are strongly recommended to use Firefox as your browser when direct exporting. You may have problems with Direct Export using the web browsers Safari or Internet Explorer.

You may also see the "File not found" error message when Direct Exporting.
