Terms Lists for journal title abbreviations

Journal Terms Lists are used by EndNote to automatically convert an abbreviated journal title into a full version or a full journal title into an abbreviated version.

Your referencing style will specify if your journal titles need to be in full or abbreviated version. For example Vancouver uses abbreviated journal names whereas APA 6th uses the full journal name.

You can download the Medical journals terms list from the link below and add it to your Endnote Library by following the instructions on the Auckland University of Technology Library medical journal terms lists page.

If you have any queries or require terms lists for other journal collections please contact the Library.

Updates to filters and connectors and styles

EndNote works with filters to pull records from databases into EndNote, connectors to search out to PubMed from within EndNote and styles to format referencing according to various styles (such as publisher specific styles, as well as Vancouver, Harvard, APA etc).

There are many thousands of styles available and it is advisable to check you have the latest.
Styles can be freely downloaded from the EndNote site.

Available EndNote downloads.

If you are installing the new files on a home PC or Mac, you can double-click on the file and it will automatically open in EndNote. Click on 'File' then 'Save as', remove the 'copy' from the end of the file name and save (for connectors or filters).

Some useful connectors and filters that are not included in the default files are available for download below.
