EBSCO only allows you to add 50 records to the Folder at any one time - so if you have a very large number of records you want to export there is an alternative option. On the results page, select the Share option, then "Email a link to download exported results" - see the detailed guide on Exporting large numbers of records from EBSCO databases.
For multiple references (you need to have a Google account to use this feature):
Alternatively, for one reference:
Use these ProQuest instructions for: ASFA, ASSIA, ATLA, Australian & British Education Index, Biological Sciences, British Humanities Index, Environmental Sciences & Pollution Management, ERIC, IBSS and LLBA.
There is no instant way to convert references created manually in Word.
For small numbers of references search by article title in Scopus or Web of Science etc. Add references to a 'list' or 'folder' within the database and export them all simultaneously to EndNote or RefWorks.
A few reference management systems e.g. WizFolio allow you to paste a list of Word references which are converted to referencing software format and you can export them for use in EndNote or RefWorks. The quality of these references will be variable and you need to check and edit carefully. See instructions below.
