Limitations to EndNote’s Find Full-Text features:
If EndNote is not able to locate the full-text of an article for a reference in you library that doesn't mean you can't get it. It only means EndNote couldn't find it. Check the libraries' E-Journal holdings to see the thousands of journals you have access to through Rowan University Libraries.
Go to Edit > Preferences
Select Find Full Text in the left-hand column
Check all the boxes listed set full-text search options
In the OpenURL Path box enter Rowan University Libraries' open URL server address, https://openurl.rowan.edu/. Entering the address allows EndNote to search for articles in Rowan Libraries' Discovery service.
Click Apply and OK.
To search for the PDF or links (URL) to full-text articles in an EndNote library highlight a reference or group of references
Go to References > Find Full Text or use the Find Full Text icon.
EndNote will search for either PDFs of the articles or links (URL) to the full-text or database record that will automatically be attached or inserted into the corresponding references The progress and the results of the full-text search be viewed within EndNote in the left hand column.
If a PDF or link isn’t found then you can also search Rowan’s Discovery service using the bibliographic data in your EndNote reference.
Highlight the reference and go to References > URL > OpenURL Link to see if the article can be located within Rowan University Libraries’ Discovery service.
If the article is located within Rowan Libraries Discovery service the record will display and you will see the options to access the article full-text of the article online or to request it through Inter-Library loan.
Due to the limitations of EndNote’s Find Full-Text features and Rowan’s Discovery system it is possible that the article will not be located even with good bibliographic data in the reference. If that is the case it is best to look to see if the journal is subscribed to by Rowan Libraries using Journal Finder and retrieving the article through the publisher’s or provider’s website.
If a reference in your EndNote library contains a link (URL) to an open access article, or to its full record in a database, such as Pubmed, highlight the reference and click the link in the reference or go to References > URL > OpenURL to open the link.

IMPORTANT Information about Finding Articles and EndNote
Using Endnote to locate an article depends on having good bibliographic data in your reference. If your reference doesn’t have a DOI or other unique identifying number, or complete author names, article and journal titles, volume, issue, year, etc. the less likely the article can be located using EndNote’s Find Full-Text features.
If EndNote’s Find-Full features fail to retrieve or locate the full-text of the article that doesn't mean the article is not available through Rowan. Search the Libraries' Journal Finder to see if the journal the article is published in is available through Rowan University Libraries. If the article is not available through Rowan request the article through Inter-Library loan and your campus library will obtain a copy of the article for you.
