Can not import EBSCO Wildlife alerts

I can not import EBSCO Wildlife alerts for some reason.

Nothing at all happens. The standard ISI-CE import fine.\This is the format of the txt files,

I have tried ALL EBSCO filters and the older Wildlife Ecology Studies (EBSCO) worked in older version of EN.

I removed all the header data and still no importing?

AB- The social behavior of Myotis daubentonii bats was studied in
experimental groups kept in an openair cage. The repertoire of
identification, aggressive, and friendly (integration) behaviors was
described. Analysis of their frequencies showed that interactions between the
animals were for the most part friendly (61.6%), while aggressive displays
were rare (4.6%). Differences in behavior depending on sex and age were
revealed: avoidance of contact and aggressive vocalization were observed
significantly more frequently in young and adult males than in females. The
bats in the experimental groups personally distinguished each other; in group
4, a two-level hierarchy was established (a dominant male vs. all other
bats), which could be explained by specific conditions in the open-air cage.

AB- Most natural forests have been converted for human use, restricting
biological life to small forest fragments. Many animals, including some
species of bats are disappearing and the list of these species grows every
day. It seems that the destruction of the habitat is one of its major causes.
This study aimed to analyze how this community of bats was made up in
environments with different sizes and quality of habitat. Data from studies
conducted in the region of Londrina, Parana, Brazil, from 1982 to 2000 were
used. Originally, this area was covered by a semi deciduous forest,
especially Aspidosperma polyneuron (Apocynaceae), Ficus insipida (Moraceae),
Euterpe edulis (Arecaceae), Croton floribundus (Euforbiaceae), and currently,
only small remnants of the original vegetation still exist. The results
showed a decline in the number of species caught in smaller areas compared to
the largest remnant. In about 18 years of sampling, 42 species of bats were
found in the region, representing 67% of the species that occur in Paraná and
24.4% in Brazil. There were two species of Noctilionidae; 21 of Phyllostoma;
11 Vespertilionidae and eight Molossidae. Eight of these were captured only
in the largest fragment, Mata dos Godoy State Park (680 ha). Ten species had
a low capture rate in the smaller areas with less than three individuals. Of
the total sampled, 14 species were found in human buildings, and were able to
tolerate modified environments, foraging and even using them as shelter. As
the size of the forest area increases, there is a greater variety of
ecological opportunities and their physical conditions become more stable,
i.e., conditions favorable for growth and survival of a greater number of
species. Forest fragmentation limits and creates subpopulations, preserving
only long-lived K-strategist animals for some time, where the supporting
capacity of the environment is a limiting factor. The reduction of habitats,
species and genetic diversity resulting from human activities are endangering
the future adaptability in natural ecosystems, which promotes the
disappearance of low adaptive potential species. (English) [ABSTRACT FROM

I suspect the reason why the import isn’t working is because the character “tags” in your text file (e.g., TI-, AU-, etc,) aren’t matching the tags in the filter’s templates. A comparison of the tags in your 2 records and the the Wildlife Ecology Studies (EBSCO) filter shows a definite mis-match. For example, the filter accommodates only 1 author (AU-) but your first record has 3 AU- fields; the filter is missing assorted fields shown in your records (e.g., PD-, PG-, DT-, etc.); the filter uses different  tags (e.g., NT-, OR-, SO-, etc.) which aren’t in your records

So for the import to work either the filter needs to be modified or a new one created (unless you can locate another EBSCO filter which matches the tags in your text file).  Could you attach a file copy of the actual text (.txt) file with the 2 records?

Hi Gecko,

OK full EBSCO alert document is attatched.

If you come up wiht a new fileter ofr can tell me wher eto find one I would be very greatful.

ZIpped file so delete TXT for ZIP extension.

Thank you for the zipped .txt file of about 100 records. I created an import filter based on the tags and data variations in those records (attached). During testing it was necessary to change your .txt file from Unicode (Big-Endian) to Western European (Windows) to perform the import but otherwise the process of importing records into EndNote took about 4 seconds (see image).

Please note that the filter may need further adjustment if future downloaded EBSCO Wildlife records are in a format (i.e., the way the data appears following each tag) not currently addressed in this filter. So you might check the results fter importing. There are also limitations you should know about concerning the EBSCO Wildlife records, and EndNote import filters:

  1. There’s inconsistency in the way the EBSCO Wildlife records have been entered. For example some of the records have the author name and email address appearing on the same “AU-“ line with no delimiter to parse the information.

One example is record #6 which displays:

AU- Clement, Matthew

This format will cause the imported record to be displayed in the EndNote library with both the author name and email address appearing in the Author field. You can correct this by manually changing the EndNote record after importing or change the tag in the .txt file by adding a delimiter such as “.  1” so the tag is changed to:

AU- Clement, Matthew.  1

Also note one record (#29) has a comma inserted between the author first and last name. So a correction will need to be made manually to the EndNote record (post-import) or in the .txt file preceding importing.

  1. Some of the EBSCO Wildlife records display both month and year (e.g., Dec2012) but EndNote limits importing the Year field as numeric so only “2012” will be imported. However, there’s a “DT-“ field which seems to correspond to YYYYMMDD so this information is being stored in the EndNote “Notes” field.

  2. EBSCO Wildlife records only list the starting page number (not a range) so the starting page and not the range and are imported into EndNote’s “Start Page” field.

  3. Only 2 fields in the EBSCO Wildlife records have been set to “IGNORE” in filter: PT-, and IS-. You may want to review the fields in the .txt file to confirm whether you want the info imported in which case you’ll need to change the filter by designating the EndNote field name.

After the records are imported into EndNote additional adjustments (e.g. title capitalization, word/phrase case, inserting/replacing/changing text) may be made via EndNote’s assorted tools.
