Some features of EndNote Online are useful for detailed or systematic-style literature reviews
Systematic review management tools such as Covidence involve both importing references stored first in EndNote (Desktop or Online) and exporting files for import back into EndNote. This will normally be as the RIS file format, which is normally compatible with most programmes such as Covidence and Rayyan.
If Covidence is being used, use the product Knowledgebase pages.
Records found on database searches should be exported to EndNote first. It is also recommended to de-duplicate references in EndNote. References can then be transferred to Covidence (which does also run a basic de-duplication check).
NB: Covidence is not subscribed by the University of Birmingham, although a brief trial is underway from 1st February to 31st March 2023.

EndNote offers an easy way to find, compare and remove duplicate references.
Go to Organize - Find Duplicates
This will identify and auto-tick boxes against the duplicated items across all your references.
Note that this feature does not search for duplicate entries within individual Groups in Endnote Online.
EndNote online will allow you compare records and select the one with the best information. You can then delete the other references. You may wish to add them to another group first if you need to keep a copy of them.
To delete, rename and share groups of references, choose Organize thenManage My Groups
