Help on using the citation management tool EndNote.


Yes. You can use the Export Travel Library command as long as the references came originally from either an EndNote or an EndNote Web library, the field codes are still present, and you are using Word with EndNote.

  • Open the manuscript in Word
  • Click the EndNote tab
  • Choose Export Traveling Library under the Export Reference tab. EndNote will ask wheher you want to import to a new library or an exsiting library
  • Click OK, and the references in the manuscript will be automatically imported into the desired EndNote Library

Note: You may have problems if you are using a version of EndNote older than the version used by those sending you documents. EndNote field codes have changed over time, and an older version of EndNote may not recognize newer field codes.
