Video Tutorial: Importing PubMed Citations into EndNote
In April 2012, PubMed released a new feature–a “Citation manager” option in the Send to menu. The video below is a new tutorial reflecting that change.
If you are comfortable with the old way of importing PubMed citations into EndNote, be reassured it still works the same.
There are two ways to select the results for downloading. If you plan to do multiple searches on the topic, sending your selections to Clipboard as you search is the most efficient.
Once you have selected the items you wish to keep, you can Send them to Clipboard, and continue searching and gathering. To view what has been selected, and export to Endnote, select the Clipboard tab, and follow the instructions.
If only one search is needed, follow the instructions as given.
1. Once you have selected your citations, the pull down menus at the top of the Search page or from Clipboard
- Select “Citation manager” from the “Send to” option
- Click on Create File
- Click on the Save button
- Enter a file name when prompted. The default is citations.nbib.
- Note: the file extension type must be “.nbib”–do not change the default type.
- Save it to a location where you can find it.
2. In EndNote
- Open an EndNote library
- From the File pull-down menu, select “Import”
- Select your file
- Select PubMed (NLM) for the Import option
(If you don’t see it on the list, Choose Other Filters, and locate)
