Rationale:  Accessibility of ISMRM abstracts can be imported into literature management programs such as Endnote and Reference Manager. The most general way of doing this is to put the abstract information into a form readily readable by all such programs. The Pubmed format of the National Library for Medicine seems ideally suited to this as it is publicly documented and freely available.

The 2009 ISMRM Proceedings have been put in PubMed format and successfully imported into Endnote

 The PubMed file for import is

ISMRM and Endnote: The current version has been tested with Endnote. To import the PubMed file into Endnote, you can use the filter

If you also have the ISMRM DVD, you can change the URL in the imported Endnote file from /MyPathway2009/ to W:\Files\ assuming that your CD/DVD-drive is W.  Entering CTRL-G in Endnote will then automatically open the abstract.

Note for Reference Manager users:  The conference location is not a field in PubMed. This has been encoded in the GN (General Note) field. For Endnote the ISMRM import filter takes care of this, but no workaround is currently available for Reference Manager.

Note for BibTex users:  Given the difficulties of import/export with BibTex, the 2009 abstracts have also been made available in BibTex format, and tested with the JabRef 2.3.1. The file to download is:
