Importing to EndNote Online

The process to import references into your library requires only a few steps. First, it’s important that the import file is in the proper format. To determine the appropriate format, refer to Import Formats for details. EndNote online provides hundreds of import filters for a variety of data sources, as well as the standard RefMan (RIS) and Tab-delimited formats.

Note: If the site provides direct export to EndNote, Reference Manager, or Procite, consider using the browser plug-ins' direct export support.

To import a file:

  1. Select the Collect tab, and then click the Import References link.
  2. For the File field, click the Browse button to find and select the file containing reference data.
  3. For the Import Option field, select the import option that matches the reference data format.
  4. See Import Option Favorites to customize this list.
  5. For the To field, select a group to assign to the imported references.
  6. Click the Import button.
