APPENDIX 3 Exporting references from online databases

Author(s): 
Patrice.Chalon

All identified references must exported from the online database; first screening (Title and Abstract) will occur at the reference management software (At KCE, the software in use is EndNote).

Export will preferably result in a text file that is saved (and archived) in the project folder (S:\Project Workingspace\2 Research\04 Search for Evidence\1 Search strategy) and then imported into the reference management software.

Below, the suited export format for each database and the related EndNote Import Filter (import filters are available at S:\Endnote X files\Filters for EndNote X).
