To add references to a group

  • In My References select your references
  • At the Add to group... drop down menu choose your group OR
  • Open the individual reference and click on the arrow beside Groups:, then select the required group OR
  • When entering a new reference click on the arrow beside Groups: and select the required group

Sharing groups

In EndNote Web you can share your reference groups with other EndNote Web users. Groups other users have shared with you will appear under Others' Groups.

To share a group:

  • Click on Manage My Groups under the Organize tab
  • Tick the Share box next to the Group you want to share
  • Click on Manage Sharing
  • Click on Start sharing this group
  • Enter the email addresses of the EndNote Web users that you wish to share your group with
  • Choose Read only or Read & Write and Apply
  • Your shared groups will appear under My References with the shared icon beside them

Read only will only allow others to view the references. Read & Write will allow others to edit and add references to the group.


Find duplicates


AttributionNoncommercialShare Alike Do Not Duplicate by Sam UL

You can check your library for duplicates at any time by clicking Find Duplicates under the Organize tab. Any reference identified as a duplicate will have a yellow background. You can quickly select the 'Duplicates' checkbox for all the references with the yellow background or select them individually then click on Delete.

When using Find Duplicates, EndNote Web compares references based on the following fields:

  • Author
  • Year
  • Title
  • Reference Type
