EndNote 20 for Windows

Deleting Citations from Word

There are two types of citation in your paper: an in-text citation and a bibliography citation. Deleting a citation from the bibliography alone will not remove it permanently - the next time the paper is formatted, the citation will return. Deleting the in-text citation is the way to go, but we recommend you follow these instructions to guarantee a clean removal.

  • In Word, go to the EndNote menu and select Edit & Manage Citation(s) on the left side
  • Look for the citation you wish to delete and click the Edit Reference drop-down button to the right of the citation
  • Select Remove Citation
  • You can also use this menu to re-order references where you have two or more citations cited at the same point in the paper
