Trouble with EndNote and PubMed?

Have you gotten the dreaded “No matching references” notice when trying to search PubMed from within EndNote? PubMed’s new API structure, which went into effect last year, has caused issues for many older versions of EndNote when the citation manager tries to query the PubMed database.

How can you fix this?

  • EndNote X8: If you have EndNote X8, this will not be an issue.
  • EndNote X7: If you are running EndNote X7, be sure to update to update to version X7.7.1.
  • EndNote X6 and prior: These versions will no longer be able to search PubMed reliably from inside of EndNote. To continue using EndNote X6 and prior with PubMed, records will need to be downloaded from the NLM website using the steps in this article. If you need to work with PubMed in the future, we recommend upgrading to the current version of EndNote.
Contact Purchasing to get information on pricing or to order an EndNote update.
