ADS Labs 2

Currently with the Astrophysics Data System (ADS2) you have to create your own file to import, as all it does is display the necessary contents on screen. There is, however, a new interface in development which will allow you to export a file for import. In the meantime...

After searching

  1. If you have retrieved a list of articles, tick the ones you want - if you've opened a single item, you won't need to do this
  2. From the Export button (near the top right) choose in EndNote. After a short delay, the contents are displayed on screen.
  3. Select the displayed contents, copy it and paste into a plain text editor (eg Windows Notepad), and save it somewhere suitable (downloads folder would be a good choice).
  4. Import into EndNote Online using the EndNote Import option
