Which filter do I use to import these citations into EndNote?

Having trouble deciding which filter to use when importing citations into EndNote? If you aren't using FireFox, EndNote will prompt you to select the approprate filter. In most cases, the RIS-filter is the best one to select. Notable exceptions are listed below.

NOTE: The information included in the following table may be incomplete. Please refer any questions or report any errors to the appropriate subject librarian.

Use the generic RIS-filter to import most citation files with the .ris extension.

If you are having trouble downloading, installing or using the software with Word or LaTeX, refer to CUS's help pages

If you are having trouble importing references, choosing a format or searching a database, talk to your Subject Librarian.

If the suggested filter does not work, please see a librarian. Sometimes just the differences in individual computer setups can affect which filter works. A RIS filter (RIS-filter or ProCite RIS) is a  good option to try if nothing else works. NOTE: Do not use the Reference Manager-RIS filter. There are reported instances of this filter crashing EndNote. We are looking into the problem.
