Downloading Records from PubMed to EndNote

Many information providers have a direct export option that allows you to send copies of references directly to an EndNote library. The direct export process automatically selects an EndNote import filter to map bibliographic information into the appropriate EndNote fields.

  1. Open the EndNote program and your EndNote library.
  2. Go to the Pubmed@Wayne in your Web browser (You can find PubMed@Wayne at library.wayne.edu. Select Article Databases, then search for PubMed@Wayne.)
  3. Enter your search criteria into PubMed@Wayne and click the search button to execute your search
  4. Use the check box to select the citations you want to export from the results list.
  5. From just above the search results on the right side of the screen, select SENT TO button
  6. Select Citation manager from the Send To menu.
  7. Click Create File from the Choose destination dialog.
  8. For Windows: Select the EndNote program. The citations will be directly exported to EndNote and imported into your EndNote library. For Mac: Open Finder on your machine and select the downloads folder under your user name. Double-click on the downloaded file from Pub med to imported the records to your EndNote library.

The downloaded references from PubMed will appear in a folder called Imported References in the Groups panel. The number of references downloaded from the Pubmed site will match the number of reference that you selected from the PubMed site. At this point, you can move the references to the desired folder in your EndNote library.
