Leanne: I do not see any mention of a Science Direct fix in the X8.2 update. See attached picture.
Addition: Did a quick test with a few Toxicon (SD) references imported from PubMed. Unfortunately, no improvement in full text harvesting with X8.2.

excellent point. I only remember seeing the update notes in passing, but you are correct. -- so this has not yet been resolved. Dissapointing to say the very least.

Thanks for the explanation - this is really an essential feature of EndNote and one of its strengths. Manually going through ScienceDirect is painful! I hope this is something that can be resolved through workarounds or other improvements. Do you know why ScienceDirect decided to do this?

I do not know why SD have changed their web solution.
As I wrote in an earlier post, adding our old Open URL solution in preferences will make EndNote retrieve full text from SD:
Using this url, EndNote is able to find pdfs 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:
will not retrive any pdfs from SD both in X8.1. or X8.2.
I do not understand why the old URL will make things work if the problem is on the SD web page programming?
