I have a manuscript and its reference list in one doc-file. However, the journal prefers tables as separate documents. Therefore I have three table documents. The problem is that I have references in the tables. Right now I have 1+3 reference lists even if some references appears in both tables and manuscript text. For example one reference could have one number in the manuscript file, another in the first table and yet another in the next table. Some references just appear in one table.
Is there any way to solve the problem and get all references in the same reference list?
I would appreciate any suggestions,
