EndNote for Mac

Update references

If you have some incomplete references in your EndNote, e.g. without a DOI number, or a reference without volume/issue numbers or page numbers, you may use the Find reference updates to update these references.

  • Select the references required a update
  • Go to References > Find Reference Updates


  • A pop-up box will appear to show the new fields that may require updates: the right column is a reference in an EndNote library with an error in the title and a missing journal field. You can select Update Empty Fields to add the correct information in the left column to the reference in the right column.


  • Use the three update options in the middle accordingly.
