Example: Direct export from ProQuest databases (eg.ProQuest Central, ProQuest Science Journals, ProQuest Research Library)
Change/Move/Copy fields functions will help to add additional information to exported records, such as database name and the date and time that you have exported the search results.
You should update database name field imediately after exporting a set of references to EndNote. To do this, select all references under Recently Added and follow the steps below.
Importance of checking everything before using the mass update because it can’t be undone. e.g. if you accidently choose ‘keywords’ instead of another field you might wipe over important data
Documenting your search strategy and search results is important for your Systematic Review methodology and PRISMA flow chart. It is very important to complete this step before proceeding to the next step (De-duplication).
If you are planning to use Covidence for screening, this step is not required. Covidence will perform its own deduplication.
Once you have exported all your search results into Endnote, you will need to identify and delete any duplicate record(s). EndNote can automatically eliminate duplicate references if it includes the same author/s, year of publication and title as another record within the Library.
It may be necessary to also look for duplicates manually as the EndNote find duplicate function may miss some duplicates references due to foreign characters or spelling variation.
You can using “Change/Move/Copy fields” function and research note fields to add your comments OR you can create custom records to add specific information about the record
