Endnote Importer & 3rd Party Annotation Transfer (Desktop)

Moving your citation tools can be tough, but with ReadCube Papers, you can quickly transfer your library using our new Endnote Importer to avoid creating your library from scratch.

We’ve built an Endnote import guide detailing how you can transfer your metadata and PDFs directly from your Endnote library.

We’ve also enhanced our support for transferring over your annotations and highlights from 3rd-party tools. Now anytime you import a PDF with notes from another tool, they will automatically be available to view and edit in our Enhanced PDF Viewer.

Copy Citation to Clipboard (Desktop Preview & Web)

We’re bringing you more support to our Enhanced PDF Viewer. Now, instead of switching back and forth between the article and your library, simply copy and export the article citation to your clipboard!

Set the style you need (choose between .bib or .ris) and select Copy to Clipboard.
