Endnote X8


My Endnote X8 isn’t completing 'find full text" or ‘find reference update’. I have only recently started using it and it has never been able to complete these functions, is there something I must do to set it up to be able to carry out these functions?


Depends on your field.  If sciences, make sure all the preferences are checked (see image).  Usually Pubmed isn’t selected as a default setting, because if you select hundreds or thousands of records to run at once, Pubmed can interpret the queries as a denial of service attack and block your isp. Also I know that some functionality is compromised with respect to CrossRef querying and think that might also be a problem, which I understand from other threads, is under investigation.  

There was an issue, where the doi was not found with Crossref only DOI on PubMed servers returned results. I recently tested again with X9 and X8 and appears to be working again.
