EndNote Zip includes all citations in an issue-specific folder. If you are using EndNote, this is the preferred import option but the folder must be unzipped first.

EndNote Library includes just the citations. You may receive an import warning, but it applies only to data "lost" from the citations you are importing.

XML includes just the citations. It is the most versatile format for importing references into various platforms.

Use the "open" or "import" options in EndNote, Zotero, or other reference management platform to access the citations.
