EndNote Web has two browser tools that can make importing records easier than other methods. These do not work with all databases, however, and some browsers work better than others.
Both tools can be found in EndNote Web under Options --> Download Installers
Web Capture Bookmarklet
Web capture is a bookmarklet that you add to your browser's Bookmark Toolbar. When searching article databases, you can view a record and then click the button on your toolbar to import to EndNote Web. This works with many popular databases like JSTOR and PubMed and many journal publisher sites. It also works with Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer.
EndNote Web has addons for Internet Explorer and Firefox. This adds a button to your toolbar that works in the same way as the Bookmarklet.
The Internet Explorer addon will be installed automatically when you install the Cite While You Write tool for Word. The Firefox addon is installed manually like other Firefox addons.
Windows 7 users: the addon does not seem to work in the 64 bit version of IE.
You can import records from PubMed using the Online Search feature or using an Import Filter.
Web of Science and EndNote Web are both produced by Thomson Reuters, which makes saving records extremely easy. Signed-in users will see an EndNote Web icon next to any records that are already in their library.
Most databases offer an export in a tagged format called RIS. This may also be called Bibliographic Software format, EndNote format or something similar.
Direct export to EndNote Web is not widely available. EBSCO is the only publisher that we are aware of that offers it at this time. The process is similar to using RIS export.
Records from EBSCO databases will include an EBSCOhost icon in the record and a direct link back to the database where you found the record.
