Sync EndNote Desktop application and EndNote Web. This will allow you to use your EndNote library from any computer, and will also create a backup library.
1. Open the EndNote Desktop application, and go to Preferences.
2. Click "Enable Sync"

Journal Term Lists contain the approved full title and abbreviations used in the reference styles. Some databases import only the abbreviated journal name while your style may call for the full journal name. Setting up Journal Terms Lists ensures that the journal names in your references section are either the full name or the abbreviation, whichever your style requires.
1. Open the EndNote Desktop application.
2. Go to Tools -> Open Term Lists -> Journals Term List.
3. If the Journal Term List is empty, skip to step 5. If not, highlight all journal titles.
4. Next, press the "Delete Term" button to the right (there should then be 0 journals in the Journals List).
5. Now go to the "Lists" tab at the top, and click on the "Import List" button.
6. Browse to the Term Lists folder within the EndNote folder, and choose both the BioScience and Medical term lists.
7. Close this box. This will import the correct abbreviations and full journal names for over 8,000 journals.
** If you discover that the style has not been updated (e.g., the reference uses an abbreviation instead of a full title), then you can edit the output style by going to Edit -> Output Styles -> Open Style Manager (see EndNote FAQ).
Output Style refers to the template used by EndNote to format in-text citations and reference lists in a particular style. Output style controls which part of your reference is capitalized, italicized, and the order in which your references appear. Disciplines generally use a particular citation style when writing (medicine- AMA; nursing-APA, etc.) and particular journals also have specific guidelines for how authors should reference articles.
