Terms list

If your referencing style requires journal titles to be abbreviated e.g. Vancouver style, you will need to use terms lists. 

To import the Medical journal list into your EndNote library:

  • From Tools>Open Term Lists>Journals Term List select the Lists tab
  • Highlight Journals and click Import List... navigate to the Medical.txt.

 PC Users:C:\Program Files\EndNote X7\Terms Lists.Highlight, Open, OK and Close
 Mac users: Applications\EndNote X7\Terms. Choose, OK and Close

  • In EndNote, go to Edit>Output Styles>"Edit Vancouver Curtin X7"
  • Click on Journal Names, select the Abbreviation 2 button and tick Abbreviate journal articles only.
  • Close the window and save the changes.

It is recommended you add the medical terms list into a new library so that the abbreviations will work OR highlight and delete the existing terms. Then click on Lists and highlight Journals and import the list etc.
