PsycINFO     Contains citations and summaries  of journal articles, book chapters,  books, and technical reports, as  well as citations to dissertations,  all in the field of psychology and  psychological aspects of related  disciplines. The journal literature  spans 1887 to the present.

    27. 27. I found an article I want to save for my research and the article itself is available for download to EndNote.
    28. 28. Save the PDF file to my computer directory. Then, when in EndNote I can bring up the citation for the saved record. Look at the options and click on the paperclip which should immediately bring the PDF file into the EndNote record where it will attach to the citation record and be saved within EndNote with that record.
    29. 29. The EndNote Library is growing with citations and articles. I’ve been using two databases to get to these scholarly journals and can go on to more. EndNote becomes a file-box full of articles, citations, my own notes, charts, graphs, etc.
    30. 30. There is valuable research information found in the downloaded material from every article to EndNote. And, you can add your own notes to this research page.

    37. 37. 1. Open Word 2. Open EndNote 3. In Word, put the cursor where you want to insert the EndNote citation. 4. Using the EndNote toolbar in Word, go to EndNote and select the citation you want to insert 5. Select Tools and then CWYW and then Insert Selected Citation 6. The citation is now inserted into the text of Word and the Bibliography at the end of the document The above directions for inserting citations into a Word document comprise one way of getting this task done (the options are many but this is my preferred method).
    38. 38. 54 If you need to edit the citations inserted into Word from EndNote, the easiest way is to go to the full reference view in EndNote to make the editing changes and save that record by closing the viewing pane and saving. Then go to Word and select  Update citations and bibliography from the EndNote toolbar in Word. The saved changes will be reflected in the Word Document a miracle, btw.
