You can attach PDFs or other types of files to EndNote references. The simplest way to attach a file to a reference in your library is to do it manually. There are 3 basic ways of attaching a file manually.
You can import PDFs into your EndNote library. EndNote X4 and later can extract the reference information using its Digital Object Identifier (DOI). If the DOI is not present the PDF will be imported, but you will need to do manually enter the reference information into EndNote.
NOTE: EndNote can only generate a complete reference from the PDF if it has an embedded DOI.
Note: The find full text feature will not be able to find and attach PDFs to all of your references. If you want PDFs attached to all of your references you will need to manually attach many of them.
EndNote's Find Full Text tool will automatically search the web for PDF files of the references in your library. EndNote searches a few free resources, but it can also search GSU's subscription databases for PDFs.
To get the EndNote find full text feature to work with GSU library resources you will need to adjust some settings:
NOTE: Authentication for EndNote's Find Full Text feature does not work with OpenAthens, the library's authentication system. Consequently, the Find Full Text functionality will be limited. It will retrieve articles from open access journals, but it won't be able to find PDFs that are behind a paywall.
