Capture Reference

Capture Reference is a browser bookmarklet that can be used to capture online references from webpages, into EndNote online or EndNote Desktop. Capture Reference scans the bibliographic information presented on a Web page and creates a reference for you to save to a new or existing group. Some databases, such as Google Scholar™ and PubMed, allow you to capture an entire page of references all at once.

How to Install Capture Reference

To Install the Capture Reference bookmarklet:

1.    Open a browser
2.    Add a bookmark and name it “EndNote Capture”
3.    Edit the bookmark and change the URL to be the javascript listed below:

javascript:var obj=document.getElementsByTagName("head")[0];var scripts=obj.getElementsByTagName("SCRIPT");var flag=0;var ENW_HOST="";var httpPort=%27:80%27;var httpsPort=%27:443%27;var protocol=location.protocol;if( protocol.match(/https:/) && (navigator.userAgent.indexOf("Trident/7.0") > 0 || navigator.userAgent.indexOf("Trident/8.0") > 0 || navigator.userAgent.indexOf("Edge/") > 0)) {ENW_HOST=%27;}else {var port=protocol.match(/https:/)?httpsPort:httpPort;ENW_HOST=protocol+%27//;}for(i=0;i<scripts.length;i++) {if(scripts[i].src.match(/bookmarklet.js/)) {flag=1;break;}}if(this.disabled == undefined && flag==0) {this.disabled = true;try{var x=document.createElement(%27SCRIPT%27);x.type=%27text/javascript%27;x.src=ENW_HOST+%27/Download/public/bookmarklet.js?%27+(new Date().getTime()/100000);document.getElementsByTagName(%27head%27)[0].appendChild(x);}catch(e){console.log(e);};}this.disabled = undefined;void(0)
