In some disciplines, researchers have to use abbreviations of journal titles in their publications. EndNote handles this problem by using term lists in which the user can store both the full titles of journals and the corresponding abbreviations.

We recommend that you delete all terms in your existing journals term list and import the new list. Alternatively, you can import the new list into your existing journals term list and EndNote will filter out any duplicate entries. EndNote will only consider entries to be duplicates if the data in all columns is identical.
