The following databases allow direct export into EndNote Online as a choice in their output options.
However, most databases do not provide direct export into EndNote Online. Importing references involves saving records from the database as a file and importing this file into your EndNote Online library.
In the database you are searching
1. Mark desired records
2. Look for a Save or Export option in the database
3. If given options, choose full records and EndNote format. (The table below indicates the format options and file types of selected databases)
|Format option||Downloaded File type|
4. Save the file. This usually goes into the Downloads folder on your computer. (If not, save to a location you can easily find).
When the file is imported into EndNote Online you will need to choose a filter to allow the import to occur. This filter applies to the database you used or the file type downloaded. There are hundreds of database filters provided in EndNote Online. Consider creating a favourites list of those filters or databases you commonly use. To do this click Select Favourites.
Once the records are saved in a file go to EndNote Online and import them.
