EndNote provides two functions that can help you obtain full text PDFs for references in your library:
Using the OpenURL Link function is the most reliable. When you use this function, EndNote opens a browser window and displays a Monash University Library page with a link to download the full text PDF for your reference (if it is available).
The Find Full Text function is less reliable, but will still work in some cases. This function will attempt to retrieve a full text PDF from Monash University Library or an alternative Open Access source. If a PDF is found, it will automatically attach to the reference in your EndNote library.
Note: Our new authentication system, Open Athens, is not currently compatible with EndNote. Other options for adding full text to your EndNote records are covered under Importing and Managing PDF Files.
These instructions will allow you to use both the Find Full Text and OpenURL Link functions in EndNote.
1. Open EndNote.
2. From the menu select Edit > Preferences
3. On the left-hand side, select Find Full Text
4. Tick all 4 boxes at the top of the window
5. In the OpenURL Path box, enter:
6. Leave the Authenticate with box empty – do not enter a URL
7. In the list of preferences on the left-hand side select URLs & Links
8. In the ISI Base URL box add
https://go.openathens.net/redirector/www.monash.edu?url= at the front of the default URL so it becomes:
9. In the OpenURL Arguments box, replace ?sid=ISI:WoS with sid=ISI:endnoteand keep the rest of the string
10. Click OK.
This method will retrieve full text PDFs for some, but not all, of your references. In some cases, only a URL will be retrieved, and in some cases nothing at all. The results will be improved if DOI or ISSN details are available in the reference.
The configurations on this page may allow the EndNote to locate and download electronic resources that Monash University Library has subscribed to. However you should be aware of the following limitations and restrictions when using this feature:
When using full text content, you as a Monash University Library user are bound by licencing agreements and copyright. Therefore you should refrain from systematically downloading large quantities of full text content using this feature. Any breach of this agreement may result in the suspension of your account.
