The tabs below provide step-by-step instructions for adding individual and bulk records to EndNote from some of our most popular database platforms. Read General Tips for more information on where to find instructions for your particular database, and different browsers and computer software.
Many databases share a common search interface or platform as part of large database collections. Examples of such collections are ProQuest, EBSCO host, OVID, EI Engineering Village and Informit. If a particular database is not showing in the above tabs, check if it is part of such a collection. If so, follow the instructions in the tab for that collection. If not, contact your librarian for advice.
The majority of databases allow records to be exported to EndNote using the direct export function, which involves selecting and sending records to EndNote as you are searching a database. The above tabs explain this procedure for different databases.
Although connection files and import filters are included in the installation of EndNote, direct export from a database via its “native” interface provides the most effective and comprehensive results and we highly recommend this method.
Unfortunately EndNote and ARTStor are no longer compatible, so manual entry is necessary (the EndNote basic tutorial covers manual creation of EndNote records). Alternatively, EndNote Online has a reference capture tool that works with this database.
The following instructions apply to the CAB Direct databases CAB Abstracts and Global Health.
Maximum download: Up to 1000 records at a time.
The following instructions apply to Cochrane databases on the Wiley platform.
See Ovid instructions for other Cochrane databases eg. Cochrane database of systematic reviews
Maximum download: Unlimited
Maximum download: 25,000 records
The following instructions apply to the suite of EI Engineering Village research databases.
Maximum download: 500 records as direct export. 1000 records as a CSV file.
A maximum of 50 records can be exported at a time (select 50 per page).
There is no direct export function in Factiva. However, records for Publications (i.e. not Web News or Blogs) can be imported into EndNote using a filter file available from Macquarie University Library. A maximum of 100 records can be downloaded at one time.
There is no option to bulk export records from Gale databases. The My Folder option has been discontinued.
Ensure that you have changed your Google Scholar Settings using the menu at the top left of the window (3 horizontal lines). Under Bibliography manager, check Show links to import citations into EndNote. Click Save. Also in Settings make sure your Library links include Monash University – Check for full text.
Maximum download: unlimited, but you need to add references to My library in Google Scholar first.
Ensure that you are logged in to your Google account. NB. All previous saved selections remain in My library unless you trash them regularly. You may want to change Results per page to 20, also under Google Scholar Settings.
Alternatively, download the program Publish or Perish where you can execute the same Google Scholar search and perform bulk exports to EndNote more efficiently.
The following instructions apply to Hein Online law databases. Exporting is limited to law reviews or law journal articles only. You may choose to create your own personal MyHein account to save bookmarks and searches, but this is not a requirement.
