How to organise my references

Hello,

 

I have around 200 references for different things i am working on. I am trying to categorise them by topic. So I make a group and copied/pasted references into there. But now in the 'all references' section, there are duplicates of the references I had copied to paste into the group file (even though the references I copied and paste did successfully end up in their group folder). Why is this happening with the duplicates in the all references? I  just want to organize my references into groups based on for each manuscript i am working on. Is there any way I can do this better?

 

Thanks.

Don't copy and paste them.  Just drag them.  It will not move them out of another group, but can associate a record in multiple groups.  Copy and paste makes a new copy so it is a duplicate.

Re: How to organise my references

In general, do you have any tips for the best ways to organise references pertaining to different manuscripts? Is putting the references in a group for each manuscript the best way?

You can, or you could add a keyword and create a smart group based on that keyword (or any other field).  

 

As an alternative, if your endnote version creates a group when you are editing a paper, you can DRAG them to a new group and when the number in that temporary group is more than the number in your new group, drag them again (it will add just the new ones).
