How to Use EndNote in 5 Minutes: Windows


How to Use EndNote in 5 Minutes This video will give you a
fast start on using EndNote. It will show you— 1. Two ways to import a reference from an
online database, using PubMed as an example. 2. How to create a custom group
and add references to it. 3. How to use Find Full Text to
download PDFs for references. 4. How to insert a reference
in a Word document. 5. How to format a bibliography, using
the APA style as an example. 6. How to add page numbers to a citation. The first method of importing is Online Search. In EndNote, click the Online
Search Mode button. Select the online database you want to search. There are thousands more available,
these are just popular ones. Build your search. Click the Search button to perform the search. Click the OK button. Select the references you want from the list. Click the Copy to Local Library button. Click the Local Library Mode button to see
the contents of your EndNote library. The references you just copied are shown
in the temporary Copied References group. To create a permanent group
for your references, select Create Group from the Groups menu. Enter the name of your group and press Enter. Select the references to add to the new
group and drag them into the group. Another method of importing
references is direct export. I am going to import some references
from PubMed as an example, but this method can be used with
many other online databases. I am using Firefox for this example
because it supports direct export on both the Windows
and Macintosh platforms. Direct export will also work with
Internet Explorer or Google Chrome. Perform your search of the online
database in your browser. Select the references you want to import. For PubMed, mark the
references to select them. Click the Send to link,
then select Citation Manager. Different databases will have different
ways of selecting references and preparing them for export. This link may be called different
things by different data providers. Look for something that talks about saving,
exporting, or importing references. If offered a choice of formats, select the
one that mentions EndNote or RIS. For PubMed, selecting Citation Manager will
save it in the correct format for direct export. Click Create File. Firefox will ask you if you want to open the file
and what program you want to open it with. Select EndNote. Click the OK button. Click the OK button. If the database is set up for direct export,
the references will import right into EndNote. The new references are shown in the
Imported References temporary group. Drag the new references to the
permanent group they should belong to. To have EndNote try to find
the PDFs for references, select the references, then
click the Find Full Text button. If EndNote is able to find the PDFs, you will
see a paperclip icon appear by the references. After a reference is in the EndNote library,
it can be added to a Word document. In Word, click where you want
to put an EndNote reference. Then click the Go to EndNote button. Select the reference or
references you want to insert. Click the Insert Citation button. The reference is inserted into your
paper and instantly formatted. To change the style, click the tiny arrow in the
bottom right corner of the Bibliography group. Select the style from the list of favorites. If your favorite style is not showing, you can
use the Browse button to see more styles. Click the OK button. To add page numbers to a
citation, click on the citation, then click the Edit & Manage Citations button. Add page numbers to the Pages field,
then click the OK button. EndNote can do a lot more than this. If you would like to learn more, we have
video tutorials and full class recordings available on our EndNoteTraining
YouTube channel.

  1. I just downloaded the trial version on windows and I can basically do nothing that you mention in this video. What is the point of a dead trial version?

  2. Do I need to register the software? Or will it cease to function after some time if I do not do it?

  3. for someone who was raised in the era of less technology, and has never used endnote before i thank you for saving my life..lol

  4. Good morning, please create a google chrome extension to import EndNote references in a single web page search result in scholar searches into EndNote application directly; instead of importing one by one reference from searches into the PC and then into EndNote.
    2) EndNote will not import many references (which are highlighted altogether) located in windows folder into EndNote app once. What can I do differently?

  5. I keep getting a 'Remote password' form come up offering me to enter username/passwords (which it says is optional), then I get an 'Error searching for records' pop-up and no search is performed. Can you help? Thanks!

  6. Hi! I have a problem with the full text search. No result at all on any kind of search… Maybe I'm doing something wrong?
    I'm from Portugal and I'm using my uni VPN, research is on Acoustics and there are tousands of references yet no full text…

  7. Is your web page hacked or something? All pages redirect to your online store. Wanted to check your forum from google search and it sends me to online store. Wanted to check an output style and it sends me to online store. Called a friend asked him to get on your web page, he was also redirected to your online store. Tried on my phone and same result. I know you guys are greedy but this is just too much. How many times should people buy your software to be able to use the website?

  8. Thank you so much for uploading this video! this is really helpful and easy to learn especially for beginner. much thanks! terima kasih!!!

  9. Yeah… PubMed is easy. It is on the list. I spend almost 4 hours try to connect the app to IOPscience and JLB. Nothing. If the publication is not from the database, you are doomed.

  10. What if I want to insert para, part, section, provision, art., etc.? How to do this in an unformatted citation? Do I still use @ ?

  11. Do these same steps apply if I am using the offline version of the program? I can't seem to be able to import files directly from an online database. I am using Google Chrome on a Windows PC.

  12. Hi i want to know how i can add end note reference if i want to write in between the text for example Garcia et al (2014) & Siqveland et al (2015) reported no effect of age on PTG. How i can add reference with out any bracket?

  13. EndNoteTraining when I start building my library, it stops at the 30th article!!! if you have an idea how to solve this problem please share it with me. Thanks a lot

  14. What if you write the author’s name in the sentence and then you have to add the year in parenthesis ? Is the software capable of doing this? No! And this is only one of the limitations of this overpriced software that has not added benefit to what we are using already

  15. Hello erm please I have a couple of pdfs but when I send them to end not so I reference only the title on the document icon shows and when I reference only that show…please how do I make the authors and year show when I add to endnote thanks
