Attaching PDFs in RefWorks and EndNote

A useful feature of bibliographic software is the option to attach the full text of a reference (e.g. the PDF of an article) to the bibliographic details of the reference.

Attaching PDFs in RefWorks

Click on the edit icon (paper+pen) next to the reference you want to attach a file to:


RefWorks Edit reference

Go to the Attachments Field and click Browse.



















Find the file you wish to attach and click Open. Save the reference.

The file will now be attached. When you are viewing the list of references there will be a paperclip icon, which you can click to open the file attachment.

Attaching PDFs in Endnote

Click on the reference you want to attach a file to, and click the PDF tab in the bottom half of the window.















Click the paperclip icon. Browse to the file you want to attach and click Open. Save the reference.














Once you have attached a PDF it will be visible in the PDF tab.
