Endnote is designed to be a research manager like Mendeley which handles primarily PDFs. There are some drawbacks to Endnote, which may cause some users to want to switch to another citation manager, like perhaps Mendeley, Zotero, or RefWorks.
On this page, we will outline the steps that you need to go through in order to transfer your Endnote library to another citation manager.
To export your citations from Endnote, you need to follow these steps. But also keep in mind different citation managers prefer different output formats from Endnote. Consult this table to see which you should choose:
