EndNote Click

EndNote Click is a literature search and retrieval tool that helps researchers find and download PDFs from legally authorized sources such as publishers, open access repositories, and other document archives. EndNote Click is a free web browser plugin that you install with Chrome or Firefox.

EndNote Click works with Belmont's subscriptions to bring you paywalled articles that you (using your MyBelmont credentials) are entitled to access. If no subscription access is available, EndNote Click will try to deliver a free alternative, e.g. an OA version or preprint.


Add the extension to your browser to get started:

  • Download EndNote Click for Chrome
  • Download EndNote Click for Firefox
  • Download EndNote Click for Edge
