What is explained in that training video is what I normally do to export from WoS. Now let me give you an example. If I exported the following journal article:
Kaplan, A. M., & Haenlein, M. (2010). Users of the world, unite! The challenges and opportunities of Social Media. Business Horizons, 53(1), 59-68.
The information under the field “Notes” would include among others:
Cited References Count:14
I need this information for further analysis by other software and it was not useful for me to have this and other information bundled together in the Notes field. So under preferences, I have now modified the reference type Journal Article so that
Custom 1 = Research Areas (SC)
Custom 3 = WoS Categories (WC)
Custom 4 = WoS Times Cited Count (TC)
Custom 5 = Cited Reference Count (NR)
I have also created an Output Style which a variation of RefMan (RIS) so that the output produced is a text file similar to that produced by WoS text export file.
That is if there were data in the custom field that I have created then I would be able to create an output file in the format outputted by WoS.
[I enclose two documents to demonstrate the differences between the text file produced by WoS and EndNote (using RefMan (RIS) format). Both outputs relate to same 20 items. The collection which formed the basis for the export from EndNote was created by direct exporting same 20 records from WoS to EndNote. The output from EndNote is from before my modifications to RefMan (RIS) format.]
So the problem is to get my exports from WoS to EndNote to place the right information into the right fields (rather than putting many of them together in the Notes field).
I tried to solve this problem by creating a modified version of “Web of Science (TS)” import filter. This works but only if I import from a text file which has been outputted by WoS. What I would like to avoid is to have to first export from WoS in text format to then import it into EndNote using this import filter. I want the direct export from WoS to EndNote to either use this filter or by other means to place the right information in the right fields in my EndNote database. Does this clarify things a bit better?
[Just as a note, my modifications of the “reference type” fields, RefMan (RIS) “output style”, and Web of Science (TS) “import filter” are not optimal yet. I have just done enough modification to see if I can achieve what I need to do and the modifications that I have done so far seem to be working and I am on the right track when it comes to those alterations. Sorry I don’t know how to attach my filter here.]
