Zotero can import citations from EndNote. See the glossary definition of EndNote.

  2. Hover over the Format tab
    • A menu will appear beneath it
  3. Click Export References
  4. Click References
    • A drop-down menu will unfold
  5. Choose a reference to export
  6. Click Export Style
    • A drop-down menu will unfold
  7. From the list of output styles, choose RefMan (RIS)
    • Note: if you do not see RIS as an option, you’ll need to download the style from the EndNote site. It could also be that the style is not enabled. You may have to go open the Output Styles Manager from the Edit menu, enable RIS, then close the manager before it's an option.
