EndNote: Research Process

Important Note: Find Full Text

Please note that when using "Find Full Text" feature in Endnote, ensure that you are not downloading PDFs in large batches.  

Downloading large batches of pdf articles from the same ejournal title could potentially trigger off a chain of events which may cause access to that particular electronic resources to be affected.  

We recommend users to check that they are not downloading large amount of articles from the same ejournal title and publisher.

Please also take note of our electronic resources usage policy.

Research Process

How does Endnote fits in your research process?

  1. Before starting your search phase, open a new Endnote library.
  2. Give it a filename and save it in your PC/laptop.
  3. You can search for information using KAUST library's electronic resources such as Databases A-Z or Ejournals titles or even Google Scholar.
  4. From the electronic resources website, select the articles/book section that you wish to export to EndNoteX6.
  5. Use the Export Citation selection to move the selections to Endnote.  Please note that different electronic resources use different techniques to export the selections to EndnoteX6.
  6. When executed properly, the selected materials will be moved into your Endnote library.
  7. Once you have collected all the desired information, you may begin writing your paper.
  8. Use the Cite While You Write function to do in-text citations as well as to create your bibliography within the paper.
  9. As a rule of the thumb, use only 1 Endnote file with 1 MS Word.  Do not open multiple Endnote files when writing your paper.
