Adding full text to your EndNote library
There are three different ways that an EndNote library can be built by using existing PDFs and finding the full-text.
- The simplest method to attach one PDF is to select the record from your EndNote library and drag and drop the PDF.
- Another option is to create records in your EndNote library by adding a folder of PDFs. From the toolbar menu File > Import > File or Folder. Note: Endnote can harvest the data about an article and create a reference for it as long as the article includes a DOI.
- Lastly, add PDFs to existing records in your EndNote Library using the Find Full Text. From the toolbar menu References > Find Full Text > Find Full Text. EndNote searches for the PDF files and where available, attaches them to your references.
The EndNote library guide has step-by-step instructions on how to ‘add full-text PDFs.’
If you already have some existing PDFs try adding them by utilising either adding one PDF or adding a folder of PDFs.
Or, mark some records in your EndNote Library and use the Find Full Text method.
