Now that EndNote is installed, there are some basic set-up steps that need to be completed before you begin adding references to EndNote. Please follow the instructions below to finish setting up EndNote X9.
Once EndNote has been downloaded, users must create a Library before they can import any references to EndNote. EndNote's Libraries and Library Groups allow users to sort and organize their imported references. The Library is the default organization level for EndNote, while Groups act as sub-folders within a Library for further organization of references. Some users create one Library and use multiple Groups to organize their references for various projects, while other users create a new Library for each project. Each method has advantages and drawback; use the method that is most comfortable for you.
EndNote includes the JAMA citation style as one of its default citation styles. However, the College of Medicine requires a slightly modified version of the JAMA style that does not match EndNote's default JAMA style. To ensure that all students meet the College of Medicine's required standards for their JAMA citation style, the Health Sciences Library has created an EndNote Style Output File of the COM approved JAMA style. Please follow the steps below to upload the UCF College of Medicine JAMA Style to EndNote.
EndNote's Terms Lists are specialized journal lists provided to EndNote by various subject authorities. The Medical Terms List is a list of medical journal names, and their accepted NLM abbreviations, that is provide to EndNote by PubMed. Since the JAMA citation style depends heavily on these journal abbreviations, COM users must make sure they are using the most up-to-date version of this Terms List. Follow the steps below to upload the Medical Terms List into your EndNote Library.
When EndNote is initially opened, users may receive an Update Notification.
