Importing with RIS


I imported a reference in RIS to End Note X3 and some of the fields such as the conference field does not appear. I oppened the RIS file in notebook and has the following fields:

N2  - In recent years, the number of sensor network deployments for real-life applications has rapidly increased and it is expected to expand even more in the near future. Actually, for a credible deployment in a real environment three properties need to be fulfilled, i.e., energy efficiency, scalability and reliability. In this paper we focus on IEEE 802.15.4 sensor networks and show that they can suffer from a serious MAC unreliability problem, also in an ideal environment where transmission errors never occur. This problem arises whenever power management is enabled - for improving the energy efficiency - and results in a very low delivery ratio, even when the number of nodes in the network is very low (e.g., 5). We carried out an extensive analysis, based on simulations and real measurements, to investigate the ultimate reasons of this problem. We found that it is caused by the default MAC parameter setting suggested by the 802.15.4 standard. We also found that, with a more appropriate parameter setting, it is possible to achieve the desired level of reliability (as well as a better energy efficiency). However, in some scenarios this is possible only by choosing parameter values formally not allowed by the standard.

As you can see the conference name appears with cappital letters JF in there but not in the endnote system when importing the file. Is this a bug?

When you look at the import filter is the JF tag connected to a field in the library record?  If so, is it connected to the correct field?

How do I look the RIS importer filter?

I am new in endnote and I am just using the option: File | Import | Import Option: Reference Manager (RIS)

Hello Rod,

The JF tag is not used in the Conference Proceedings RIS data format.  I have updated the filter for you so that you can correctly import this data into your EndNote library. 

You must place this file in the My Documents/EndNote/Filters  folder on your harddrive and then it will be accessible when you select File/Import in EndNote.

Please let me know if I can be of additional assistance.

Hi Rod,

Attached is an RIS-based Zotero filter which should work for your conference proceedings.  Please give it a try and if it doesn’t work, send me the Zotero RIS output file and I will tryto improve the filter for you.

Kind regards,

Jeff Jackson

Thanks both of them worked
