EndNote can import and create records from PDF files. EndNote can also import PDFs from sub-folders, and is able to create a group set for the imported files.
To import PDFs into your EndNote library:
N.B. If your imported PDF has a DOI: it will import with quite a few of the fields filled in.
If your PDF does not have a DOI: it will create a blank record with the title of the reference the name of the PDF.
To import PDFs into your EndNote library as a group set:
EndNote has the ability to search for full-text PDFs of journal articles that have already been added to your EndNote library.
3. You may be prompted to enter your Deakin username and password. Enter your Deakin credentials and click Login. Then click Continue
4. Click OK to agree to the copyright usage notice
5. When EndNote completes the search, you will see how many full text articles were retrieved on the left side of the window. The retrieved PDFs will be attached to their respective reference and can be viewed in the Attached PDFs tab.
N.B. There are some important limitations to bear in mind when using EndNote's Find Full Text feature.
To manually attach full-text PDFs to references in your EndNote library:
To open PDF files in a full window view:
N.B. EndNote will automatically open the first PDF attached to a reference when you select the PDF viewer panel.
Now you can annotate PDF files attached to the reference. These annotations are also searchable in EndNote.
EndNote has a feature that will rename PDFs automatically as you import them into EndNote
You can nominate in EndNote a particular folder where you like to download your PDFs. When you nominate a folder, EndNote will monitor this folder, and automatically import new PDFs added to this folder into your EndNote library whenever you open your library.
N.B. EndNote creates a folder called imported within your nominated folder and automatically moves all the PDFs that it has already scanned into this folder. This ensures that EndNote won't scan the same PDFs again.
Please note that as of late August 2019, Kopernio is no longer working with Google Scholar.
The problem seems to be connected to Google Scholar's terms of service (there is relevant information at this Kopernio support ticket). Kopernio still works with other research sites (e.g. Web of Science), but the lack of availability for Google Scholar will reduce Kopernio's relevance for some users.
Kopernio is a free browser plugin that:
Kopernio is presently available for Chrome, Firefox and Opera. It is closely integrated with Web of Science but also works across other research sites, depending on your home library's subscriptions.
Kopernio publishes library-specific how-to guides. See here for the Deakin guide.
There is also a general online guide published by Clarivate which includes a hands-on video demonstrating how to install and start using Kopernio.
If you want to share articles using the Kopernio Locker, be aware that you must not share articles from subscription journals in breach of Deakin's licence obligations. You can read more about sharing articles from subscription journals here.
You cannot delete your Kopernio account yourself. You must email an account deletion request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
To disable or remove Kopernio from your browser, you need to access your browser extensions. In Firefox, for example,
