EndNote

Why use EndNote?

Using EndNote is one way to manage your references. The software will keep track of your references in a library you create.

When you are searching Library databases you will be able to export your results to EndNote.

PDF copies of articles (if they have associated metadata), can be imported into EndNote which will complete the reference details automatically.

You can harvest PDFs to go with the references in your library using the Find Full Text function.  You need to change your preference settings for this to work.

When you have references in your library you will be able to insert the references into your Word documents (Cite While You Write) to create in-text references and a reference list that will automatically be formated in the reference style of your choice.

Compatibility information for Windows, Macintosh, EndNote Online

IE browser within the WA Health network

The following small change to the IE browser setting will assist EndNote to search out to PubMed and also improves retrieval of pdfs using the Find Full Text function

Go to:

Tools
Internet Options
Advanced
     Scroll down to Secutity and untick the following two boxes:
       Check for publisher's certificate and revocation   
       Check for server certificate revocation
Hit apply
Close down and restart the browser.

Why does Find Full Text not retrieve pdfs even when the Library has a subscription?

Elsevier ScienceDirect and some other publishers have linking structures that will not work with EndNote. The pdf can be downloaded to the desktop and attached to the citation from there.
