EndNote to JabRef to EndNote

  1. In Endnote, select the citations you want to export and go to “File / Export”
  2. Select “RefMan (RIS) Export” in the Output Styles dropdown box
    (in case it is not there, choose “Select Another Style…” and look for RefMan RIS Export)
  3. After exporting the file, go to JabRef and import as RIS

 

endnote-2-jabref Voila!

There are many ways of doing this. Here’s one on fellow blog Fundamental Thinking. Josh’s method is based on the JabRef Endnote Export Filter.

To go from JabRef to Endnote

  1. In JabRef, select the citations you want to export and go to “File / Export”
  2. Select “Endnote” from the dropdown box
  3. In Endnote go to “File / Import”
  4. Choose the data file that you just exported from JabRef
  5. Under import option, choose “EndNote Import”

Voila!

How to Resolve or Link to a DOI

Given a DOI number (for a journal manuscript for instance) one can link to this DOI in a word document for example or in an HTML page by invoking the following

http://dx.doi.org/YOUR-DOI-NMBER

Try this for example

http://dx.doi.org/10.1103/PhysRev.47.777

Voila!

The DOI, or Digital Object Identifier system, is a systematic way of identifying digital resources in a rather permanent way. It is a neat way for tracking and managing digital resources in an absolute reference manner. So, for example, if you want to link to a journal paper, you can either use the permalink for that specific paper or simply link to the DOI. In theory, no matter what happens, the DOI number will always locate that paper.
