EndNote: Moving from Mendeley/Zotero to EndNote

EndNote (EN) is a software for managing references. It can automate the many tedious steps involved in organizing and formatting the references and bibliographies in your academic writing. EndNote Web (ENW) is the web version of EN, with fewer features.

Moving from Mendeley to EndNote

To export Mendeley citations into a .RIS file, first select the citations that you want to be exported.

Next, click on File and select Export.

Next, make sure that the Save as Type is in a .RIS file format. Once that has been done, click on save and your citations will be exported.

 

To import .RIS file into EndNote, first click on File followed by Import --> File.

Make sure that the Import Option is Reference Manager (.RIS). Choose the .RIS file that you want to import and the citations will be imported into EndNote.
