In Paper View, the process for creating an Annotated Bibliography hasn't changed much, but now you can see your annotations before you export your paper.
Note: Although this will create a paper with a Title and Body section, we're going to turn those off in the export/download process.
The first thing you'll need to do is create a new paper for your Annotated Bibliography. Once you have the paper open, follow these instructions.
- Add References to your paper
You can use the References & Citations panel to add existing References or create new ones.
- Click References in the menubar
You'll see the menubar at the top of the Editor.
- Click Show Annotations
That's it. Now you'll be able to see any Reference Annotations directly under their Reference in the Reference section.
If your Reference doesn't have an Annotation, there won't be anything to show. Next, let's create or edit the Annotations.
Edit Annotations for References
Once all of your References have been added and you're showing the Annotations, you can edit the Annotations themselves. Here's how:
- Double-click the Reference in the Reference section
You can also click Edit beside the Reference in the References & Citations panel.
- Go to the References tab
- Edit the Annotation field
- Click Save
- Repeat for each Reference
Now you'll be able to see all of your References and their Annotations in your paper.
Exporting your document
The final step is to export or download your paper. You'll do this using the Export/Download tab inside the paper.
In the Include section at the top of the Export/Download tab, be sure the only boxes checked are: References & Annotations.
Now you can download, print, or email your paper in your chosen format. The final document will just include the Reference section and the Reference Annotations.
