Hi there. Sorry for posting two questions on the same day but perhaps somebody can point me in the right direction.
I’m trying to get the biblio at the end of my doc to split into two sections. The reason I want to do this is so that I can list all the newspaper articles separately. I looked through the help files for Endnote and can see there are facilities for creating sections in a doc and then having a biblio for each section.
So I thought that if I input a section break after the single end-of-doc biblio that I have now, I can start a new biblio in the new section. Inputting the section break in Word is quite easy, and I have checked the output style field for ‘create biblio each section’ but how do I tell Endnote which refs to assign to which section. It seems like a mystery.
Any help will be much appreciated,
The section break facility doesn’t work that way. What I suggest you do is adjust the sorting options in the Bibliography section of the Output style. In the simplest example, you could choose “other” under bibliography sorting, and sort by Reference type. This would sort all the books first, then the book chapters, then the Journal articles and finally the newspaper articles. But you would probably prefer to use a custom field so they get sorted in the order you want, which I assume is everything else in the usually author/year order and then the Newspaper articles. Then a custom field with something in it (say Newspaper) and the rest will be sorted first and the Newspaper articles will be listed last. You can easily add that text to all the newspaper articles by first displaying just the reference type “newspaper” and using the “change and move fields” add specific text to the custom or other chosen field you don’t use, then sort on that field. If you want Newspaper first, reverse sort on that field, if newspaper articles last, sort normally on that field.
These settings are shown in the attached GIF where I chose to use “type of work” as the field I sorted on. This would be sorted A to Z so fields with the text Newspapers would be sorted last, if the field was empty in the other records.
at the end of the day, you will need to turn off CWYW or on a COPY, removed field codes from the document to insert a couple carriage returns and add titles to separate the two parts of the reference list.
Thanks for the reply and explanation.
Could I just check a couple of things?
Is there any work around to get a couple of blank lines appearing in the middle of the ref list so that the two sections are automatically separated? I’m thinking of a sort of ghost reference which is all blank, if such a thing exists.
You mention that finally I should turn off CWYW and then insert lines. I think I understand correctly that turning off CWYW is to break the links between the ref list and Endnote. I’ve been looking around the Endnote and Word commands and also the right-click commands but I can’t find a command that breaks these links or turns off CWYW. Could you point that out for me?
Once I’ve broken the links presumably there is no way to turn them back on again?
That’s great. I’ll go with your suggestion and tidy it up at the end.
The method worked well for generating a filmography. I just changed the sorting order as adviced and then wrote “film” in the “type of medum” field.
