Why am I not able to import references from CINAHL to EndNote X4 for MAC?

Question: I am using EndNote X4 for MAC and Safari to try to import references from EBSCO’s CINAHL databases. But I can’t. Why am I not able to import the references?

Answer: According to the EndNote Technical Support, there are limitations of Safari in working with EndNote. Based on our test with Safari in MAC for EndNote X4, we noticed that: 1) it is not possible to export references from EBSCO’s CINAHL & ASP directly or indirectly into EndNote; 2) searching PubMed directly from EndNote is possible; 3) it is not possible to export references DIRECTLY from OvidSP Medline but able to do so INDIRECTLY.

To avoid these problems, we recommend using Firefox for working with EndNote X4 for MAC. If you have any question regarding EndNote for MAC, please contact your campus librarians for help.
