Note: To import references from IngentaConnect into your EndNote Web account, you need to do the following:
Stage One: Saving references in IngentaConnect
- Do your search in IngentaConnect as normal.
- Click on Export options on the right of the screen.
- Select Plain text from the list which appears.
- A new window opens containing the references you found.
- In your web browser click File > Save as (or Save Page As in Firefox).
- When the Save box appears, save the file as normal. Make sure that the File Type option is set to Text File (*.txt).
- Click on the Save button.
Note: this will save all the references you found in your search, not just ones you have marked as relevant. For this reason, it is recommended that you import your references into a specific folder in Stage Two. This will make it easier for you to view the references and delete any you do not want to keep.
Stage 2: Importing references into EndNote Web
- In your EndNote Web account, click on the Collect tab.
- Select Import References.
- From the Filter drop-down menu, select IngentaConnect.
- Select the group you want to put the references into (see note above)
- Click the Import button.

If you only use a small number of databases on a regular basis, did you know you can customise the EndNote Web Filters list so it only displays the ones you use?
To do this:
- Click on the Collect tab.
- Click on Import References.
- Click on Customise this list (next to the Filters drop-down menu)
- Two boxes will appear on the right hand side of the screen. The one labelled All shows all the different filters you can use. The one labelled My Favorites will just display the ones you choose.
- To limit the filters displayed, select the ones you wish to keep by clicking on them (you can select several at once by holding down the CTRL key).
- Click on the Copy to Favorites button.
From now on, only the list of filters you have selected will be displayed.
If you want to return to the full list of filters, simply click on Customise this list again, select all the filters under My Favorites and click on Remove From Favorites.
