EndNote & SULinks

The OpenURL Link can be enabled to connect to SULinks to find the full-text reference. SULinks provides links from a citation to the full text of that article, if available. The OpenURL path must be enabled in EndNote.

In the EndNote Preferences, look at the Find Full Text page

  • OpenURL Path:
  • Authenticate with URL:

Then select the URLs & Links preferences

In the Arguments: box leave all of the information in the box except for one change at the beginning of the information. Replace ?sid=ISI:WOS with ?sid=ISI:endnote in "?sid=ISI:WOS&..."

Save the changes to your preferences.

Importing PDFs

Before you do this, make sure you have run any updates necessary for your version of EndNote.

In EndNote:

  • Go to File drop down menu.
  • Choose Import and select Folder.
  • In the box that will appear, choose your folder and select PDF for the import option.
  • Click Import.
Files will appear as References.  Depending on the quality of the PDF, the reference information should also transfer to the proper fields.
