Begin Creating Groups
You can begin organizing your groups in preparation for adding citations to them. Groups are akin to folders, where you can store citations by topic, project, course, or any other arrangement you choose.
Export from databases
Many databases and search tools available through the library allow you to export citations in various formats. Some even allow you to export directly to certain citation managers. For example, SuperSearch offers a direct export to EndNote in its Actions menu (see below). Selecting this option takes you directly to EndNote in Web of Science and automatically imports the citation.
Import a file of citations
When importing a file of citations (for example, from another citation manager or from a database that does not offer direct EndNote export), the file will likely be in RIS format. RIS is the standardized tag format that allows citation management tools to exchange data.
Capture Reference bookmarklet
When you add the Capture Reference button to your browser's Bookmarks/Favorites bar, use it while visiting a web page to quickly capture one or more references from that page. To add Capture Reference to your browser, visit the Download page in EndNote. Information about the tool and compatible capture sources is available in EndNote Help.
We highly recommend verifying any citations gathered using the Capture Reference tool (or any automated citation tool). Some web pages are better than others at supplying the information necessary to create a good citation, and the tool is only as good as the information it finds on a page.
Create a citation manually
If you do need to contact EndNote Support, be sure to let them know that you are using EndNote Basic via Web of Science, because some features differ from the free version of EndNote.
