Option 1: Direct import
Select the desired references in the specialist database and click on "Save", "Export" or "Send to". EndNote will then start automatically and the references will be imported. This option is offered by numerous database providers.
Option 2: Import text files
Save the desired references in a text file in the specialist database. The table below provides instructions for the relevant databases.
|Database and filter name||Procedure|
Biosis Previews (OvidSP)[no license for current versions]
Philosopher's Index (OvidSP)
Zoological Record (Ovid SP) [no license for current versions]
Bus Source Prem (EBSCO)
|ERIC: select the ‘Pubmed (NLM)’ import option during import.||
Select ProQuest filter.
|Catalogue of the University Library Würzburg: download filter here: Catalogue UB Wuerzburg||
Attention: To ensure that umlauts are copied over correctly, select the "Unicode (UTF-8)" subitem in the "Text translation" option when importing to EndNote. The filter will import some data (multi-volume works, title additions) with minor errors. More information about editing in EndNote can be found under "Edit Filter – About this Filter".
|SciFinder Scholar: select the ‘Reference Manager (RIS)’ import option when importing.||
|Web of Science Core Collection (TR): for Science Citation Index||
This method offers fewer search options than when searching directly in the specialist database. The connection to the specialist database is established via connection files.
- Option 1: In EndNote, go to "Tools – Online Search" and select the connection file for the desired database with the appropriate provider (see table below for providers). If you are logged into the university network (directly or via VPN), all you need to do is confirm with "OK" (without entering a user ID or password) for databases licensed by us.
- Option 2: Use the connection files from the table below. A user ID and password are already included. While logged into the university network, download the connection file for the relevant database from the table. Save it on your computer in the respective EndNote directory (e.g. C:\Programs\EndnoteX7\Connections\)

Attention: Some data (multi-volume works, umlauts, special characters, etc.) will be imported with minor errors via the connection file. More information about editing in EndNote can be found under "Edit Connection File – About this Connection File".

- First select "Edit – Preferences – Find Full Text" from the menu, then enter the link: http://sfx.bib-bvb.de/sfx_ubw in "OpenURL Path" and confirm with "OK".
- Then select the desired reference in your EndNote library. Select the "Find Full Text" option from the "References" menu and confirm the copyright message. Go to "Find Full Text" in the left column to check whether EndNote has found a full text. This full text will be linked directly to the reference in the "File Attachments" field in EndNote. Alternatively, you can select "File Attachments" to manually attach full texts.
- If you could not find full texts for a reference using the "Find Full Text" option, you can go to "References – URL – Open URL Link" to display the SFX menu for the reference and search for print versions or initiate an interlibrary loan..
