EndNote X3 offers the option to find the full-text of the references downloaded to your EndNote library. I’ve had excellent results with this feature for references downloaded from PubMed.
Before trying to find the full text you have to set your preferences in EndNote. Choose: Edit/Preferences/Find Full Text.
Check all four of the boxes on the preferences box, if they are not already checked.
Two URLs need to be added to the preferences box.
The OPEN URL PATH (which allows EndNote to find the full text from the reference) should be: http://www.galileo.usg.edu/sfx_emory
The AUTHENTICATE WITH URL (which allows you to authenticated as an Emory faculty/staff/student and thus get access to Emory-paid resources) should be:
Here’s what it looks like:
After you’ve done a search and downloaded some references in EndNote, select the references you want to find full text for. Right click and select: Find Full Text – Authenticate. You will be taken to a web page where you enter your Emory NetID and password, and click “login.” Then click “done” to close the window.
Back at your EndNote library, right click the selected references AGAIN, and choose “Find Full Text –Find Full Text” (editor’s note: Find full text ALREADY!).
EndNote will begin searching through both freely available materials and Emory-licensed resources to find the full text. You can watch EndNote tally the progress on the bottom left side of your library. When a pdf is found, a paperclip will display next to the author’s name in your library. Sometimes EndNote cannot download the pdf, but will provide a link to the resource. These will display as “found URL.”
For more information on EndNote, see the library's EndNote Research Guide. And/or watch a video on searching Pubmed with EndNote and downloading the full text:
