In order for the lists to always contain the terms used in a given field, the program can scan through all references in the library to see if given fields contain words that do not appear in the list. The list will then be updated with these new instances. A list can be updated based on one or more fields.
- Select «Define Term Lists» from the «Tools» menu
- Select the list to update and click on «Update List»
- Then select which field(s) to check for new words / terms.
EndNote can be set up to scan all references that are entered and imported automatically.
Note that the list of journals is slightly different from the others to cater for different abbreviations.
