What file extension do I need to save my Logos bibliography for it to appear into Endnote? Or am I thinking all wrong?

The RIS format is generally best for Endnote importing. Save it as .RIS in Logos, then in Endnote go to File/Import and choose "Reference Manager (RIS)" as the import type.

Question. I want my collections in Logos to be Groups in Endnote. Is there a simple way to make that happen? I now know I can get each collection into EndNote, but what about a group, and not duplicated.

Dear Mark, I use a Mac and use Bookends, is it possible to have my Logos Library to appear in Bookends, at the moment I type each one by hand?

You should be able to export from Logos as BibTex or RIS, and import into bookends. I'm only on my iPhone at the moment, but I think you can export a collection in both these formats. To create a collection of your entire library, use the filter rating:>0.

When I went into the File menu I wasn't able to click on "Import." Where do I need to put the Logos file (which saved as a txt despite saving it at RIS) and what else do I need to do to get the full Logos collection into EndNote?

You need to have an Endnote file open before you can import. Create a new one if necessary.

Just point Endnote to wherever you've saved it.

I'm not sure I understand this question, sorry.

Ok I finally found what I needed to do so I could import my library. However, I discovered that even after saving my Logos library as an RIS and importing it as such in EndNote there is an issue. EndNote changes all items into Journals. How do I make EN realize that some are books and others may be journal articles?

They will all import as the same type, but you can change the default from journal to something else. In Endnote, it's Edit -> Preferences -> Reference Types.

I didn't see an answer about how to import the Logos Bibliography into EndNote groups corresponding to Logos collections. Is there a way to do that besides exporting/importing each group one at a time? God Bless! Dan

FYI, I exported my Logos library in the RIS format but the EndNote import didn't work at first. I worked with EndNote tech support who were very quick and helpful. They found that after each of the RIS tags there was a special character + space rather than two spaces as the RIS standard specifies. To fix this the tech support person used MS Word to do a global replace of the special character with a space. Once that was done the import into EndNote worked just fine. Dan

Dan can you give more detail about what you mean?  I still have not been able to import my citations.

This does appear to be a spacing issue, although looking at our implementation of RIS export, it seems like there are some other things we can do to provide more/better information.

Look for better RIS export support in an upcoming release.

Workaround:

1) Delete the 3 blank spaces before the "TY  - " lines in the file

2) All the two letter codes should be followed by two spaces. Due to a bug in our export, one of these characters is not a normal space character (ASCII character 32 / Unicode character 0x0020), it is a non-breaking space (Unicode character 0x00A0) which causes the lines not to be recognized.

Fixing those two spacing issues might be sufficient to get the current exported citation data to import until we ship a updated version of Logos that fixes this more directly.
