Yes, this is possible, but it is quite labor-intensive. Essentially, there are 4 methods of doing this (we recommend the last method, using HubMed):
- Rearrange the reference data using your word processor so that it is in a format that EndNote can import.
- Copy and paste each piece of data from its source into the proper fields in EndNote.
- Enter the data manually by typing it into EndNote.
- Copy your references from a Word document or PDF and paste them into the HubMed Citation Finder then follow the detailed HubMed instructions (see steps below).
- Download the EndNote filter at HubMed.
- When downloaded, open in EndNote, then do a Save As (remove the word “copy” from the file name)
- Then go to the Citation Finder in HubMed.
- Copy and paste your list of citations into the box on this page. Important: the citations should already be a numbered list. They need to be separated in this way so the HubMed citation finder will parse them correctly.
- Click the Submit button.
- You will be asked if the citation list split correctly. If it did, click yes. If not, return to the previous page and fix the separation between the citations.
- When you click yes, the citations will be listed in an exportable format. If any citations aren’t found, they will be noted.
- Check all and choose “Export Citations”, then RIS for exporting to EndNote.
- A dialog will appear asking whether you want to open or save the file. Choose “Open with ResearchSoft Export Helper” if available, or select EndNote as the application to open it. As long as you have saved the EndNote filter in Step 2, the citations should export right to your EndNote library.
An additional method would be to search for each citation individually in the most likely database to hold the citation information, such as PubMed. Search using the EndNote interface or search PubMed directly and import the data into EndNote. Again, this is labor-intensive, but it may be the most accurate way of ensuring your data will be entered correctly.
