Mac Problems with EndNote Import? Here’s a Solution

If you are a Mac OS X and EndNote user you may have had problems exporting citations from Google Scholar and other online databases. Here’s a solution:

1. Put EndNote in your dock.
2. Export citations from Google Scholar and save them on your desktop.
3. Click and drag the saved citations from your desktop to the EndNote icon on the dock.
4. The EndNote program will open and ask you what EndNote Library you want to export the citations to.
5. Choose the Library. Your citations will be saved to that Library.

    Thank you very much, it finally worked.

    I am quite familiar with Endnote on Windows, but new to Mac, and I was struggling for a while.

    Thank you again.

    Thanks for this very useful hint –
    I thought already I would have to regret having switched to Mac (with Windows the direct export of references via EBSCO into the EndNote libary is also easily possible).

    Thanks!

    I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong – I’ve tried this with Endnote opened and closed – to no avail. A dialog box opens and asks what I want to open – and I cannot select the downloaded scholar.enw file. So sad!
