Setting for Find Full Text feature

EndNote provides "Find Full Text" feature for you to download the fulltext for the reference that saved in your Endnote Library. You have to change some setting with the following steps before using this feature.

1. Click Edit → Preferences


2. Click the 「Find Full Text」on the sidebar and tick all the 4 boxes.

3. Input as the 「OpenURL Path」.

4. Input as the URL for「Authenticate with」, then click「OK」


These setting only need to be set for once. After finish the setting, select the references that you wish to find the full text and click right button → Find Full Text → Find Full Text for the feature.


However, this function is limited by the institute's subscription and other technical issues.

It is possible that EndNote found the article URL only, or even found nothing.  In this case, just download the full-text PDF via our Discovery platform or other databases and attach to the reference.
