EndNote X2 (and earlier) importing problem: Year field empty (with a fix)

When importing records with a publication year of 2010 or later, the record in your EndNote library may have a blank in the Year field.

How can you correct this on future imports?

If you use EndNote version X3, the records import the year data correctly.

A patch to fix this problem in EndNote X2 is available from EndNote. You options for earlier version of EndNote are not great, and are detailed in EndNote’s FAQs.

If you need help with any of this, please contact the Public Health Library.
