IMPORTANT! When you add an author, make sure to insert the surname first and then the first name (or initial). Then press enter after each name if you want to add several authors.
If you want to add the name of an institution or organization as the main author, be sure to add a comma after the full name. This is so EndNote will not interpret the last word (Welfare in this example) as a surname and the other words as first names (which it will also convert to initials in most output styles):

Direct export is perhaps the easiest way to get references from a database into your EndNote library.
Most databases offer an option to export to EndNote or as a RIS format file. EndNote can also read other file formats, such as .nbib (PubMed) and .ciw (Web of Science). Please refer to the specific database help section for more information.
To export references from Google Scholar, you can configure the settings first to make the Import into EndNote option available in Google Scholar search results.
To import a reference from Google Scholar into EndNote:
Please note that 1) using this method, you can export only one reference at a time from Google Scholar into EndNote; and 2) not all the information in the reference can be exported (such as the abstract or DOI). If a reference is available in PubMed or another database, you can import it into EndNote with more complete bibliographic information.
To import several references from Google Scholar into EndNote, you need to log in to your Gmail account and follow the steps below.
You can import a PDF or a folder of PDFs into your library with all the bibliographic information extracted automatically, if the PDFs have embedded DOIs.
If the PDF file was scanned or it does not have an assigned DOI assigned, then it will not be successfully imported. Instead it will just become an attachment connected to an empty bibliographic record.
