Your library format will change - see our Installation Notes.

Additional Files

The Library provides some modified and additional Filters, Connection, and Styles files.

 Note that any zipped files need to be 'unzipped' i.e. right-click and choose the extract command. Copy these files to your EndNote file folder location.

If you just need the APA 7th style, note that this is not 'zipped'. Just save it into your styles folder.

PBRF and EndNote

If you have an EndNote (or BibTeX) library that contains citations that you would like added to the Profiler database, Research & Innovation can help you. The process is very simple - you'll need to:

  1. Follow the instructions below to convert your EndNote or BibTeX libraries to EndNote XML format
  2. Send your EndNote XML file to Maxine Bryant in Research & Innovation


Exporting to EndNote XML

To export your entire library

  1. In EndNote, open your library and choose File > Export
  2. Choose XML from the Save as type list

To export selected records

  1. In EndNote, open your library and select the records that you want to export
  2. Select File > Export
  3. Choose XML from the Save as type list, and tick the Export Selected References checkbox

Converting from BibTeX to EndNote XML

There is an online tool called bibconvert available for you to do the conversion yourself, or you can contact Maxine Bryant  for assistance. However, it is old (2005) and does not always work. A more reliable tool (although it can have character conversion problems) is presented at Trent Apted's site.

To use bibconvert:

  1. Select BibTeX as the input format and EndNote XML as the output format
  2. Click submit conversion formats
  3. Browse for your BibTeX file, and modify the output options for EndNote version to version 8
  4. Click Submit file and start conversion


    Large libraries may take a little while to convert

  5. When the conversion is complete, right-click the Get the EndNote 8 XML file link and choose Save link as (Firefox) or Save target as (Internet Explorer) to save the XML.
