Why can’t I change an incorrect journal title?

July 4, 2016

Sometimes a journal title can be in the wrong case  (say ALL-CAPS) – but it cannot be corrected by editing the EndNote reference. This is due a corruption in the Journals Term List.

To fix:

  1. In EndNote, go to menu – Tools: Open Term Lists: Journals Terms List
  2. Click on the journal(s) and click Delete Term.

If more than one title is affected the whole term list may have corrupted. In this case highlight the first journal, and press [Ctrl]+A on the keyboard to highlight all the terms (on a Mac, this would be ⌘+A) and then click Delete Term. This will reset the whole library term list and allow editng on all titles.
