EndNote: Groups in EndNote

Manage references and citations in your writing and research

EndNote groups

Groups enable you to break a large library into subsets for later viewing. A group simply points to a subset of references that already exist in the library.

Some important Points about Groups:

  • You can add a reference to a particular group only once, but you can add that reference to any number of groups.
  • Deleting a reference from a custom group does not delete it from the library.
  • Deleting a reference from a library also deletes it from all groups in that library. The reference no longer exists.
  • Smart Groups are built with search strategies and are dynamically updated as existing references are edited or new references are added to the library.
  • In EndNote you can create a maximum of 5,000 Custom and Smart Groups (combined) in a single library and a maximum of 5,000 Group Sets in a single library.
