I am using TexStudio for my paper

I created refrences list using EndNotes 9

In all the references that I have, I can see they all have year

enter image description here

But they year is not showing in some of the references in the .bib file

enter image description here

and therefore it does not show the year in the pdf file.

How to force EndNotes to send Year with other reference info?


Here is the bib content

   author = {Dafflon, Jessica and Pinaya, Walter HL and Turkheimer, Federico and Cole, James H and Leech, Robert and Harris, Mathew A and Cox, Simon R and Whalley, Heather C and McIntosh, Andrew M and Hellyer, Peter J},
   title = {An automated machine learning approach to predict brain age from cortical anatomical measures},
   journal = {Human Brain Mapping},
   ISSN = {1065-9471},
   year = {2020},
   type = {Journal Article}

   author = {Faes, Livia and Wagner, Siegfried K and Fu, Dun Jack and Liu, Xiaoxuan and Korot, Edward and Ledsam, Joseph R and Back, Trevor and Chopra, Reena and Pontikos, Nikolas and Kern, Christoph},
   title = {Automated deep learning design for medical image classification by health-care professionals with no coding experience: a feasibility study},
   journal = {The Lancet Digital Health},
   volume = {1},
   number = {5},
   pages = {e232-e242},
   ISSN = {2589-7500},
   year = {2019},
   type = {Journal Article}

   author = {Feurer, Matthias and Klein, Aaron and Eggensperger, Katharina and Springenberg, Jost and Blum, Manuel and Hutter, Frank},
   title = {Efficient and robust automated machine learning},
   booktitle = {Advances in neural information processing systems},
   pages = {2962-2970},
   type = {Conference Proceedings}

   author = {Garla, Vijay N and Brandt, Cynthia},
   title = {Ontology-guided feature engineering for clinical text classification},
   journal = {Journal of biomedical informatics},
   volume = {45},
   number = {5},
   pages = {992-998},
   ISSN = {1532-0464},
   year = {2012},
   type = {Journal Article}

Output style is BibTeX Export


I noticed that when refrenece has a field called "Year" it shows ok.

but for some references the field called "Year of Conference" then it does not show !

Now my question is how to add a new field called "Year"

    @Mico As I understand the question, the document class and bibliography style are not particularly relevant. The problem is that RN7 does not get a year field on export, even though there is a year filled in for it in EndNote (cf. the first screenshot).

    This seems like something required from EndNote, not (La)TeX, and therefore off topic. Regardless, see canterbury.libguides.com/endnote/FAQ-editing-styles.

    Clearly this has been a problem for a long time, and never fixed. community.endnote.com/t5/EndNote-Styles-Filters-and/…

    @Werner Although I agree that EndNote questions are generally off topic, I think this one might be useful to others since it specifically deals with a quirk in the export to bibtex. (I know you haven't voted to close, but I've added this comment in case others do.)

1 Answer 1


I think I found the solution

Posting it here so other people have the same problem can find the solution

The problem is that conference papers do not have "Year" field.

instead they have "Year of Conference"

To fix this issue.

I went to Edit > Output Styles > Edit BibTex Export

enter image description here

Then Choose "Template" from the left side menu and scrolled down to "Conference Proceedings"

In the "Year" field I chnaged the value to {Year.of.Conference}

enter image description here

That fixed it
