I have agree to teach an EndNote basic and an advanced class for the Thesis Office at my university. Last semester I taught a single class, and some students said they were hoping for more advanced information, so because of that, I’ve tried to define two classes. I would appreciate any comments or recommendations.
• Get the EndNote program
• Add citations to EndNote from common databases and websites
• Manage citations; finding, and attaching pdf’s
• Add citations to your Word document
• Create a reference list for your ETD
• Troubleshoot common problems when using EndNote in your ETD
• Work with Citation Styles (Checking, adding, and modifying styles)
• Use journal name abbreviations (Terms Lists)
• Use advanced strategies with EndNote
Next I’ve tried to clarify for myself “manage citations”, “advanced functions”, “advanced strategies”, “common problems”, and some things I have questions about for EndNote technical support (that I will ask on the phone). Again, I’d appreciate any comments or recommendations of any kind.
manage citations: grouping, find full text, linking pdf, sorting, searching, adding notes, syncing, EndNote Web, inputting a reference, find duplicates, delete citations
advanced functions: compress a library, collaborating with EndNote Web, moving bibliography, show codes (how many ways? windows, macs), formatting bibliography, convert to plain text, find and replace, change/move/copy fields
advanced strategies: research notes and annotated review style; adding a custom field; changing display fields; using keyword tagging, combining files, change case
help for macs: where are commands in Word?
What are common problems (some are in “advanced functions”)
style (not available, not exact–response: add style, style editor, see how defined, edit style; style cannot represent something needed–response:convert to plain text)
Have EndNote stop making URLs hyperlinked.
In Word 2010 go to File menu + Options + Proofing + Autocorrect Options button + AutoFormat tab + uncheck Internet and network paths with hyperlinks
File menu + Options + Proofing + Autocorrect Options button + AutoFormat As You Type + uncheck Internet and network paths with hyperlinks
status of EndNote X6 and Mac
possible issues with syncing (likely? major issues?)
what are considered common problems?
Is it safe to add a custom field per reference type, whatever an avaialble custom field is (it won’t conflict with another reference type?) could I define custom field 1 for journal articles as population and custom field 3 on books for population? no conflict?
Advantages to/recommendations for using Charts, Tables, Equations as images from EndNote?
Have a nice day
