Direct export from databases
Direct Export allows you to export a reference from the database directly into your EndNote library. Generally, databases that have this export function, will display terms such as direct export, export directly to EndNote, export to reference manager etc. The imported references will appear in a temporary window in your EndNote library. Check that all the required data has been imported correctly.
Steps generally include:
Searching a database
Marking the records you want to save
Selecting the database's direct export option
- Selecting the EndNote library you wish to export the records to
Direct export from the ProQuest database
Click in the boxes beside records to "mark" those references. Choose the More menu at the top right of the search results, then click on the RIS option.
In the next dialogue box, check that RIS is selected as Output, choose the level of information you would like exported to EndNote, and click on Continue.
If you see a dialogue box asking you what to do with the references, choose to open the file.
In the EndNote library, check that all the required data has been imported. The references will be in a temporary Imported References group. Click on the All References group in the My Library pane of EndNote to view all references.
See the Downloading References page for instructions on major databases.
