Using UC-eLinks with EndNote

The OpenURL feature in EndNote allows you to save re-executable OpenURLs (UC-eLinks) with the citations you save into your EndNote libraries. This will provide all the UC-eLinks services, including full text access (when available), the ability to check local holdings, etc., from your saved citations.


  1. In EndNote, go to the Edit menu and choose Preferences…
  2. Select OpenURL/PDF at the bottom of the left-hand menu.
  3. Check the Enable OpenURL checkbox.
  4. Change the OpenURL Path to the following:
  5. In the Arguments box, change the beginning from "?sid=ISI:WoS" to "?sid=ISI:EndNote".
  6. Click OK.

To use UC-eLinks:

  1. First open a citation in one of your EndNote libraries. Note that simply highlighting the citation is not enough.
  2. From the References... menu, select URL/OpenURL Link.
A UC-eLinks window will open with your citation and full text retrieval options.
