Find full text for Elsevier Science Direct articles has not worked for quite a long time

Hi!

 

It is my experience that EndNote's find full text has not been able to retrieve pdf files from Elsevier Science Direct journals for quite a long time now. I hoped that X8.0.2 would fix this, but it didn't. Finding full text from Elsevier Science Direct have worked very stable for many years, but not for the last year. Our patrons use a lot of journals from this platform and it is a problem that find full text doesn't work for these journals.

 

Anyone else with the same experience?

 

EndNote Moderators: Are you aware of this problem and working on fixing it?

 

Best wishes

FFT/Elsevier Science Direct is not working at the U of Illinois. I just tried it with a Geochim. Cosmochim. Acta paper.

Just installed X8.1, but Elsevier Science Direct is still not available for Find Full Text. Checked Toxicon, which we subscribe to. Citation downloaded from PubMed with doi included. No full text found for 4 test articles.

 

Still awaiting feedkack from EndNote Moderators wether this is a known issue or not?

 

Best wishes

Greetings Jan,

 

Our developers have confirmed ScienceDirect has implemented a change to URL redirecting, which now employs JavaScript - EndNote's Find Full Text functionality cannot query full text resources that utilize JavaScript due to security concerns.  A product enhancement request has been submitted to Development, but unless ScienceDirect reverses their decision to use JavaScript, there's no possible workaround to restore Find Full Text search access to ScienceDirect without re-engineering how our Find Full Text feature functions.  I do apologize for any inconvenience caused by this situation.

Best Regards,

Re: Find full text for Elsevier Science Direct articles has not worked for quite a long time

Thanks Jimmy!

 

What is interesting is that if I use our old Open URL adress in the Open URL path field in EN preferences:

 

http://sfxeu09.hosted.exlibrisgroup.com/sfx_ubit

 

EndNote is able to find pdf for ALL Science Direct titles (tested five different SD journals and 100% success). The problem is that our university do not use sfx anymore and this one is not updated for new subscriptions. The new one:

 

http://bibsys-almaprimo.hosted.exlibrisgroup.com/openurl/NTNU_UB/NTNU_UB_services_page

 

will not retrive any pdfs from SD.

 

Why will the old sfx Open URL adress cause 100% pdf harvesting from SD when the problem is with Java script. This doesn't sound logical to me (but I'm no programmer).

 

All references tested was imported from PubMed.

 

Please comment on this as pdf harvesting from SD is important!

 

Best wishes

Hi,

 

I keep hoping that I will see improved retrievals of article pdfs from ScienceDirect using the EndNote Find Full-Text feature. I am still waiting. This is really important to our faculty, please keep working at it!
