For some assignments you may need to format your bibliography to group references by type. You can do this using the Categorize References function in the EndNote toolbar in Word. and assign references to them. It allows you to create the groups yourself and put the references into them. You can set the categories up before you start writing, part way through or after you’ve finished. You’ll need to double check that all of your references have been added to a category before you convert you document to Plain Text ready for submission.

If you are grouping your bibliography by source types, click on the Reference Type column heading to sort into types first. That way you work in batches.
EndNote creates Terms lists, thesauri, of author names, keywords and journal titles from what you enter into these fields in your references. These lists can be edited.
Some referencing styles require the abbreviated journal title instead of the full journal title. EndNote’s Journals Term lists helps with this. The full journal title still goes into the Journal Title field of the record for the journal article. When you insert your citation, EndNote finds the abbreviation in the term list and uses it in the reference when the referencing style requires it.
To show abbreviated journal titles in your reference list / bibliography, you will need to replace the existing Journals list with one of the supplied journal abbreviation lists.
For further information open Help in your EndNote library and read the chapters about term lists.

There are times when it is useful to have a list of references that isn’t linked to your writing. For example, you may want to send a list of references to your supervisor to see if you’re on the right track with your research.
You can create an independent reference list without using Cite While You Write. It is possible to select and copy formatted citations directly from your EndNote library into a blank document. The resulting list will not contain EndNote formatting, so there will be no direct links to your EndNote library.

Subject Bibliographies are lists of selected references grouped under the text entered into one or more fields in the records. Separate lists will appear for unique text in each field, e.g. if you have articles by 10 different primary authors, a Subject Bibliography on the Author field will have 10 headings – 1 for each author.
You can select any of the fields in an EndNote record for this function. However, it is only effective if you systematically record the data you are going to use to create the Subject Bibliography headings.
You can use this function to organise a literature review, systematic literature review or systematic review. Below is one example of how to do this.
Create a Subject Bibliography to organise your systematic review
For this example, I'm using the Label field. See Use Change/Move/Copy Fields to organise batches of references under Organise and search your library for how to batch edit the Label field for use in a subject bibliography.
You now have a full list of the references you found, complete with abstracts, and sorted by individual searches on specific dates. This list will be useful for the data extraction, screening and writing phases of your systematic review. See the Systematic Review guide for more information on these.
