MUSE / ENDNOTE

Post by the_DZA »

Dear Jon et al.,

A couple of related questions:

1) Trying to import citations from Project Muse doesn't seem to work particularly well. Using the Bookends Browser gives a fairly garbled reference which needs complete re-editing. Perhaps it just needs better parsing: I'm not sure.

2) Trying to export citations from Project Muse's website isn't particularly good either. This is mostly because they provide a very limited set of export options. Apart from formatted text as APA/MLA, Muse only offers "Endnote" as a citation format. Using this, together with either of Bookends's "Endnote" Import Filters doesn't work at all.

What is the general advice regarding the "Endnote" format for Bookends Users? There are two filters for Endnote, but neither seem reliable and - not being familiar with Endnote - it's hard to know which one is which. Is there an argument for Bookends having a better and more standardised way of dealing with citations in Endnote format because, like it or not, it is a sort-of standard.

Just downloading 10.4 and looking forward to checking it out.

Best wishes,
Daniel

Most sites that export to "EndNote" actually export an RIS file (not an EndNote Refer file). Bookends has an RIS import filter -- try that.

Dear Jon,
Thanks, good advice - can confirm that when Muse exports as 'Endnote' it is, in fact, a perfect RIS file.
