EndNote: OpenURL

EndNote (EN) is a software for automating the many repetitive steps involved in organizing and formatting the references and bibliography in your academic writing. EndNote Online is the web version of EN, with fewer features.

OpenURL Path is problematic

We do not provide the OpenURL argument for Endnote because:

  • the rate of successful retrieval is dismal
  • successful retrieval of full-text are documents already in Open Access
  • a few of our databases were shutdown by publishers as they detected massive downloading. When we investigated, OpenURL was one of the possible paths.

Endnote Click (EN21 onwards)

An alternative to OpenURL is Endnote Click. See this article on Endnote Support's Knowlege Base. 

We tested the free version of Endnote Click that give you a limited cloud storage space. It works well with NUS' proxy bookmarklet to obtain full-text from PubMed and Web of Science, and we encourage you to explore. 

However, as we have not been able to test how effective Endnote Click is with all our subscribed databases, we cannot guarantee that it's the best thing since sliced bread. Please contact me if you encounter issues in your exploration. :)
