My primary method for reading journal articles is using an android tablet, so I’ve been downloading all of the papers I read into a specific dropbox folder for automatic syncing to my multiple computers and devices.
Since I’m reaching 100s of articles in my collection, I want to import all of my PDFs into endnote so that the full text is already associated with the reference. My pdfs are already named in a regular format <Year.Journal.FirstAuthor-Title.pdf> for easy sorting and identification inside of a file manager.
The import PDF folder is generally working great, but a number of my articles either do not have a doi number, or the number was never embedded into the PDF when I downloaded it.
Is there a quck and easy way to have endnote “Find” all of the missing data for those PDFs? For instance, could I somehow tell endnote the PMID for a particular article and have it populate the rest of the fields for me?
Thanks for any help! I currently own X4 and am running the free trial of X7 now and if X7 can do this, I’d be happy to upgrade.
