EndNote & HubMed

HubMed is an alternative way to access the information contained in PubMed.  It has a number of interesting features; two of them relate to getting information into EndNote.  One trick, (see previous blog post) will let you copy & paste a list of citations (from Word or a PDF) into HubMed’s Citation Finder to find the full citation & abstract and import them into EndNote.

A newer feature will let you directly import your citations from HubMed into EndNote – skipping that save file-import file process.  To import directly, you must first download the HubMed import filter (zip format) and save the file in the right EndNote folder.  Once done, run your search, select the articles of interest, and use the button at the bottom of the page to send them all to EndNote.  This works for at least version X, X1, & X2.  Earlier versions required a slightly different format – for details, see HubMed.org.
