Unfortunately the direct export to Endnote function in CINAHL is not currently functioning. The library is working on a solution to that problem but it may take some weeks working with the vendors to get that fixed. Thankfully there is a fairly easy work around. It simply requires you to download a file and upload it to Endnote.

Here are the step from the point of exporting from your CINAHL Folder:

  • in the folder select "Export" in the right sidebar
  • Change the export method to "Direct Export in RIS Format (e.g. CITAVI, EasyBib, EndNote, ProCite, Reference Manager, Zotero)"
  • Click save (this will download a file
  • Login to Endnote Web
  • Navigate to Collect >> Import References
  • Choose the file you just downloaded from CiNAHL
  • Choose the import option "Refman RIS"
  • Choose the group you wish to import to
  • Click import

That should import your references to the correct group.
