Transfering from Mendeley to EndNote

In Mendeley:

  1. Select the records you wish to export. You can click Edit > Select All if you want your entire database.
  2. Click on the File menu > Export
  3. Change Save As Type option to "EndNote XML"
  4. Pick a name and location for the file and Save.
You will end up with a file titled "My Collection.xml" and a folder titled "My Collection.Data."
In EndNote:
  1. Click the File menu > New to create a new library.
  2. Click on the File menu > Import File.
  3. Click Choose and browse to the "My Collection.xml" file you downloaded and click Open.
  4. Change the Import option to EndNote generated XML.
  5. Click Import.
  6. Click the File menu > Exit
  7. Open the "My Collection.Data" folder.
  8. If there is a PDF folder, copy it to the new .Data folder created with your EndNote Library. If you created a library titled "My EndNote Library," there will be a "My EndNote Library.Data" folder.
When you open the library in EndNote again, you will have the working attachments.
