Updating imported references

A new feature in EndNote X5 and X6 allows you to check for updates to fields within existing EndNote records. This feature is particularly useful for updating references to journal articles that were "In Press" at the time they were added to your EndNote Library with volume, issue and page number details.

To check for updates to library references:

  • Select a reference, then click References > Find References Updates (or right click on a reference and choose Find Reference Updates)

  • If any updates are found they will be highlighted in blue in a side-by-side comparison within the Review Available Updates Window,with the available updates appearing on the left hand side. You can then decide whether to Update Empty Fields, or copy and past specific information.

It is not recommended that you select Update All fields, in case you have added your own content to an existing field.
