  • Choose the file you saved from EndNote and click Open.
  • Digital Measures will ask you to Match Collaborators for authors in your citations that it does not recognize as SDSU faculty. If your collaborators are not SDSU faculty, just click Continue. If you do have SDSU faculty collaborators, click "Match to a user account" next to the name.
    • Note that only those who are required to use Digital Measures are in the system and can be matched.
  • Digital Measures will then verify that it has the correct information on each of the publications. Check the information on each item.
    • You can't edit the information here. If there are minor discrepencies, you can edit them in Digital Measures after the import. If there are more major problems, cancel the import and fix them in EndNote.
  • Click Finish Import and confirm that you want to load the publications.
  • Once the import is finished, you can edit an individual item by clicking on it.
