Creating a Bibliography

  1. Click on the Format tab in the main toolbar, which will automatically take you to the Bibliography subtab.
  2. In the "References:" section, select the group you want to create a bibliography for from the drop-down menu.
  3. In the "Bibliographic style:" section, select the citation style you want to use to format your references.
  4. In the "File format:" section, select the file format that you want your bibliography to be saved as.
  5. Now you can choose one of three methods to get your bibliography:
    • Save: The system will create a bibliography file for you that will sit in your Downloads folder. 
    • E-Mail: The system will prompt for an email address to send the file to.
    • Preview & Print: The system will generate a preview page, which you can use to check and then print your citations.

Deduping

  1. Click on the Organize tab in the main toolbar, which will automatically take you to the "Manage My Groups" subtab.
  2. Click on the "Find Duplicates" subtab.
  3. EndNote Online (Basic) will search across your entire library for duplicates and return with a list of the original references and their duplicates.  
    • NOTE: Depending on your research and group organization, you may want to keep a reference in more than one group. However, since EndNote checks across your entire library and not within specific groups, it may be recognizing duplicates that exist only once but in different groups. If you want to check where these originals and duplicates live before choosing to delete one, click on the folder icon in the reference record to see what group(s) it belongs to.
  4. Duplicates will already be checked off. 
  5. Check to ensure that the checked references are the ones that you want to delete and then click on the Delete button.
