When searching in the databases, look for terms such as Export, Direct export, Export to reference manager, Send to Citation Manager, Export to RIS or similar terms, as this indicates the direct export functionality is available. Each database differs so check the Help menu in the database for instructions on how to export your references.

EndNote is not able to recognise if there is incorrect or missing data so you should compare your references against the relevant referencing guide or style manual to ensure your references are correct.
