Fast Full Text: EndNote/Papers3

Gain access to Penn resources easily through these online tools.

Configuring EndNote to access Full-text Articles

EndNote will attempt to 'find' PDF's that match the records in your library.  You will need to add some preference settings.

Access the Preference area in your copy of EndNote and add the urls listed below:

  • Select the commands: Edit -> Preferences -> Find Full Text

Open URL Path:

Authenticate with URL:

If EndNote can't find the PDF using the Find Full Text Command, highlight a citation and then right-click.  Select URL -> Open URL link.  This should open your browser and link to the Library's PennText service.  Here you should find a link to the article PDF if Penn Library subscribes to the journal.  Download the PDF.  Once downloaded click the PDF file and drag it over the corresponding EndNote record.  This should connect the two together.
