Downloading PubMed Citations Into EndNote

  • Run a search in PubMed
  • Check the checkboxes next to the citations you want to import (if you don’t check, ALL your citations will be downloaded)
  • In PubMed, select the “Send to”, choose “File”
  • Change the Format to MEDLINE
  • Click “Create File”

NOTE: Select “File” rather than “Citation manager”. Citation manager only allows downloads of 200 citations at a time.


FireFox

If EndNote is not automatically shown as an option to open the file, choose “Other”, locate and click on EndNote to import your PubMed citations directly into your open EndNote library


Downloaded to Desktop or Downloads?

You must import the citations from within EndNote. The downloaded file is saved as “.txt” (e.g., pubmedcites.txt).


Within EndNote

  • Go to “File”, select “Import”. Be sure that “Import Option” is set to PubMed (NLM). If it’s not, go to “Import Option”, then “Other”, select the filter “PubMed (NLM)”
