EndNote Online

Adding references from PubMed

PubMed and Medline

The content available on the PubMed platform is essentially that found on Ovid Medline.  Ovid Medline is recommended for its clearly structured approach and direct links to full text of articles subscribed via FindIt@Bham.

PubMed can also be searched directly from within Endnote Online - see the next tab in this page for information.  This depends however on successfully establishing a link from Endnote Online to PubMed.

If a PubMed search is being carried out on the platform itself, results can be downloaded for importing into Endnote Online.

Search

  • First, locate PubMed (on FindIt@Bham) and open
  • The Advanced Search screen allows for more search options
  • Carry out a search, connecting terms with AND as appropriate
  • Select the results you wish to save (tick boxes for each) and select "Send to"
  • Choose Citation Manager to generate a file for download
  • Create File to download an .nbib file to desktop or preferred location

Searching on PubMed

In Endnote Online

  • Go to Collect - Import Reference
  • Choose file - locate the downloaded file
  • Import option - look for PubMed (NLM): if you have already added some of the import options to a Favourites area, add PubMed (NLM) to these favourites
  • Choose the group in Endnote Online where you want to send results, then Import
  • Go to My References (top left) and locate the chosen group to view the imported results.  If you did not choose a specific group, look in the Unfiled area: you should then move the results to an existing or new group to make it easier to identify references you may import later
