Step 5: Import file

Click “Choose File” to upload the .ris file. (Ex. Unless you have specified otherwise, the  file will mostly likely be downloaded into your “Downloads Folder”) 
Next-make sure you check the button for Reference Manager/Endnote" file type, then click  the blue “Upload” button. 
The uploaded files will go directly to your "Mine folder", so you will need to review for accuracy.

Step 6: Review and Edit

Sometimes The uploaded files will go directly to your "Mine folder" (instead of your pending folder). You will want to go back through your "Mine" folder to check your records for accuracy. Sometimes items are not categorized properly in the online database or manually entered by other faculty members, so you may need to change the activity type to another type. Ex. I wrote a book chapter, but it is typed as a book. 

Use the pencil icon to change the type. Make sure you click "Save" to move the file to the other folder.
