Exporting References

EndNote online allows you to export your references in one of several standard export styles to e-mail, save or print for alternative use.

  1. From the Format tab, click the Export link.
  2. Select the references to export, such as the quick list or a personal group, from the References drop-down list box.
  3. Select the Export style from the Export Style drop-down list box.
  4. Click the Save, E-mail, or Preview & Print buttons.

  • A file using the Save option – a standard ‘File Download’ window will appear allowing you to open the file or save to disk. If saving to disk, a standard 'Save to' window will open so that you can browse to the folder location and name the file.
  • An e-mail using the Email option – an ‘e-mail’ window will appear allowing you to enter the e-mail addresses of those to receive the e-mail, a subject, and a message.
  • A printed list using the Preview & Print option – a ‘Preview & Print’ window will appear allowing you to print to a local or network printer.

To create a quick list:

  1. Click the check box to the left of a record. Check the Check Page checkbox to check all references on a page or Check All to check all references in a group or list view.
  2. Click the Copy To Quick List button.
  3. Repeat steps 1-2 if you are selecting references from different pages and groups until your Quick List is complete. A warning message will display in your browser if you have exceeded your export data limit.

References copied to the Quick List remain during your active session in EndNote online. Once you log out of your library or your session expires, the quick list is cleared.

Unexpected Results?

Depending on the file format selected when exporting by e-mail, the preview may not appear as expected. This only affects the preview, not the file's data format.
