Importing PDF files

You can import a PDF file into your EndNote library. If the article includes a DOI (see below) EndNote will create a reference for the article and attach the PDF.

Click on the File menu, then Import.

Select file to be attached.

Import Option: choose PDF,  keep Import into Duplicates Library and No Translation.

DOI (Digital Object Identifier)

To create the reference with information in the correct fields the PDF must have a DOI (Digital Object Identifier). This is like a unique address for the article. DOIs have been allocated since 2000; older articles do not usually have one. If this is the case, EndNote will create a blank reference and attach the PDF document. You will need to fill in the details manually.

You can also import a folder of PDFs by going to File >Import > Folder.


Import into Duplicates Library

Selecting the Import into Duplicates Library option in the process above is important as it avoids duplicates in your Library. Duplicates within a library can lead to repeat references in Bibliographies, which can be tricky to resolve.

Finding Duplicates

To search for duplicates in your library, go to References > Find Duplicates. EndNote will show you any duplicate references within your library. (See Finding duplicates)
