  • journal abbreviations and shortcuts can be easily edited (simple csv file that can be edited in OOo/excel or a text editor)

Importing Endnote 7 into Bibus with Fedora 6 and Bibus 1.3

From Bibus

Jump to: navigation, search


In Bibus, EndNote files cannot be imported directly, so I wrote these instructions to show the steps to import an Endnote Library in Bibus.

In Endnote

  1. Open Endnote Database in Endnote 7 in Windows
  2. In the command bar, Select Edit>>Output Styles>>Open Style Manager
  3. Select Refer Export 7
  4. In the command bar, Select File>>Export...
  5. Save the file (e.g. EndNoteLibrary.txt) in a location that you can find in Fedora 6

May I recommend to first download and install a more recent (trial)version of Endnote (I used V9) prior to the above. The reason is, that this versions do support unicode. Previous versions of Endnote sometime cause problems if an entry contains special characters. This results in missing characters in the imported Bibus entries. The free trial version of Endnote is sufficient (better donate the money to the bibus team ;) )

In Bibus

  1. In the command bar, Select File>>Import>>Refer (Endnote)
  2. Select the file (e.g. EndNoteLibrary.txt)

(Your EndNote Library should appear in the Import Buffer)

3. To transfer the EndNote entries to references: In the command Bar, Edit>>Select All

  1. Then copy the files by going to Edit>>Copy
  2. Then Select References in the Left Window pane.
  3. Then paste the files by going to Edit>>Paste
