This guide will lead you through the process of downloading, installing, and setting up Endnote on your computer.


Add References – Select the references you want to import from your results list and add them to the folder.

Click on the folder icon on the top of the page to start the export process.

You can add as many references to the folder as you want and you may do multiple searches to generate your results.

Just remember that if you do not have your own folder, that this is a temporary folder that will clear when you logout.

It is recommended that you register for and use your own personal folder each time.


Select References – From your folder select up to 50 references for export to EndNote.

Click on the Export icon (file with green arrow)


Format Export – If you have more than 50 references to export, you may want to clear out the cache by checking “Remove these items from folder after saving.”

Make sure that the top format selection is checked – “Direct Export to EndNote, ProCite, or Reference Manager”

Click “Save” to go to the next step.


Export References – Make sure that “ResearchSoft Direct Export Helper (default)” is selected.

Click on “OK” to begin the export.

If you have EndNote open already, the references will simply appear in the main window.

If you do not have EndNote open, the program will start and you will see the references appear.
