Please read this alert about an import issue with EndNote versions X2 through EndNote8 beginning in 2010.
In many cases, bibliographic records with a publication date of 2010 or later will not import the year data into the versions of EndNote mentioned above. When this occurs, the year must be added manually. All other data for the reference imports correctly.
EndNote X3 and later imports records including the year field correctly. There is no import issue with this version.
The online search within EndNote Web imports the publication date correctly as well. EndNote X2 users may use the EndNote Web online search to collect 2010 bibliographic records and then transfer them to EndNoteX2. Once records are in EndNote, the Find Full Text option will locate and store PDFs and URLs while the user continues to work.
A free update will be available for EndNote X2 in early January, 2010 and EndNote X1 in the first quarter of 2010. EndNote X through 8 are no longer supported, and will require an upgrade to the current version to correct the issue.
