Using Keywords to identify references with a common theme

If you want to be able to find lots of references which all have the same theme quickly and easily, you can add your own keywords to identify them.

For example, if you quickly want to be able to identify all the references that are to do with macroeconomics, you can type Macroeconomics in the Research Notes field in the Endnote Web record for individual references. When you want to find all the references to do with macroeconomics, simply type this into the Quick Search box in EndNote Web or into the Find Citation(s) box in the EndNote Web toolbar in Word.

The Research Notes field can also be used to add your own comments or notes on a particular reference.

  2. Select Add-ons.
  3. Find the entry for Zotero and click the Disable button.
