EndNote at Rowan University: Adding/Exporting References

Guide to Using EndNote for students, faculty, and staff at Rowan University

RIS Export

Look for an RIS Export or Save Option

EndNote can import references from many databases and online catalogs.  If you don't see an option to export or save to EndNote in the database you are searching look for an option to export or save in RIS format.  RIS is a standardized tag format that enables citation programs to exchange data.  Select the references you want to send to EndNote and use the RIS option to export them into Endnote.

EndNote's Search Functionality

Recommend Not Using EndNote's Search Function

EndNote can use its own built-in search function to import references from databases,  However, many databases and resources are licensed, such as CINAHL, Scopus, and Web of Science and require authentication to use.  Licensed databases cannot be searched using EndNote's search function and it is recommended that Rowan users not use EndNote built-in search function.   

Contact your campus Library for assistance searching databases.
