5.4 Removing Duplicate Citations

If you run your searches across multiple databases it likely that you will get the same citation in your collection multiple times.

To remove duplicate citations there are two main options:

  • Order your citations by author and manually review and delete individual citations, or
  • Use RefWorks de-dupe tool. You can find this under Tools and then clicking Find duplicates (first image). You can choose Exact Match or Close Match. You will then see a list of pre-selected citations that you can then delete (second image).
