Due to recent changes to UQ login system, EndNote's Find Full Text has ceased to work on computers off the University network, except if you use a VPN. The problem is being investigated and we hope to be able to offer a solution in the near-future.

Until this problem has been rectified, the Find Full Text function will only operate on computers which are connected to the University through a LAN (wired connection) or WiFi (EduRoam), or via a VPN (Virtual Private Network). Connect to the UQ VPN.

You can use the Find Full Text command to locate the full articles of your references. You can search for up to 250 references at one time.

Find Full Text cannot be used in the Online Mode.

Viewing full text results

Once EndNote has finished searching, the results will be displayed in the Find Full Text group.

It will display how many were successful and how many weren’t located. You can then view the references in each of these groups.

For those that were successful, a paper clip icon will appear in the File Attachments column in the Library window.

When you go into the reference, a file attachment icon will be displayed in the File Attachment field.
