IMPORTANT NOTE #1: Be sure to double-check that auto-generated citations are correct. In some cases, you may be asked to include a hyperlink for the citation (e.g., doi link).
The doi is oftentimes exported into EndNote, but to create the doi link, you must add https://doi.org/ in front of the number.
IMPORTANT NOTE #2: If following AIP style or Physical Reviews, be sure to abbreviate journal titles per CASSI (https://cassi.cas.org/search.jsp) and consider double-checking the auto-generated stye against the references as presented in a recently published article in the relevant journal (https://quicksearch.libraries.rutgers.edu/journals).
