InSPIRE - EndNote Export Instructions

Exporting to EndNote from InSPIRE

Before you begin:

Exporting to EndNote form this database will produce a text file that can be manually imported to EndNote but requires several additional steps. Instructions for importing RIS-formatted text to EndNote can be found here.

If you only plan to export a few citations, it may be more expedient to find articles in this database but to export them using Google Scholar instead. (To do this most expediently, try working from Google Scholar in a second tab in your browser window. To enable exporting, be sure you are logged on to Google Scholar through the library home page rather than the open internet. You can find more instructions on exporting from Google Scholar here.)  need to check this link and add the others

1. Conduct your search.

2. Citations will only export individually. To export a citation, click on ADS Abstract Service (NOT EndNote) in the options under the title.
