EndNote tags and reference types

Defining Reference Types

EndNote has two ways of setting the reference type for each of the imported references. One method is to specify a reference type by using %0 (percentage sign followed by a zero) and the reference type name.

With this method, you can precisely specify the reference type, and need not rely on EndNote's basic automatic recognition of tags. The default reference types are listed below. If you have modified a reference type, your EndNote data files should use the new name instead.

%0 Generic
%0 Artwork
%0 Audiovisual Material
%0 Bill
%0 Book
%0 Book Section
%0 Case
%0 Chart or Table
%0 Classical Work
%0 Computer Program
%0 Conference Paper
%0 Conference Proceedings
%0 Edited Book
%0 Equation
%0 Electronic Article
%0 Electronic Book
%0 Electronic Source
%0 Figure
%0 Film or Broadcast
%0 Government Document
%0 Hearing
%0 Journal Article
%0 Legal Rule/Regulation
%0 Magazine Article
%0 Manuscript
%0 Map
%0 Newspaper Article
%0 Online Database
%0 Online Multimedia
%0 Patent
%0 Personal Communication
%0 Report
%0 Statute
%0 Thesis
%0 Unpublished Work
%0 Unused 1
%0 Unused 2
%0 Unused 3

If you do not state the reference type using the %0 tag in each record, then EndNote uses the following rules to assign reference types to the imported references:

EndNote Tags and Corresponding Fields

The list below shows the tags recognized in the EndNote Import format, and the corresponding EndNote field into which each tagged item is imported for the Generic reference type. For other reference types, many fields may be mapped to the Notes field (since a limited number of fields are included in each reference type).
