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:
Note: 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 sign in to Deakin Single Sign On. Enter your Deakin credentials and click Login. Then click Continue
4. 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.
Note: 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:
Note: EndNote will automatically open the first PDF attached to a reference when you select the PDF viewer panel.
You can annotate PDF files attached to the reference by adding highlighting, sticky notes, and other features. 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.
Note: 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.
