Creating Groups

  • If you've acquired references from multiple sources, you'll want to check to make sure that you aren't keeping multiple copies of the same reference.
  • From the pull-down menu labeled "References", select the option labeled "Find Duplicates".


  • The software offers you a choice of which form of the referene to keep.
  • When you've decided which reference to keep, click on the button labeled "Keep this Record".


  • To add references to a group, click on them once to highlight them.
  • Froom the pull-down menu labeled "Groups", select the option labeled "Add References To".
  • If you already have existing groups, select the group you want to add the references to.
  • If you have no existing groups, or if you want to create a new group for these references, select the option labeled "Creat Custom Group".


  • If you are creating a group for the first time, you will need to give the group a name.
  • Be sure to give your group a meaningful name. "Cholera vaccines" is more meaningful thatn "PubMed Search".
