4/8 Adding Online Sources to Citavi 6


When you’re searching online databases, you’ll want to export your results to Citavi. Most databases have an option for this. Just look for Export or Citation download options. If you don’t see one specifically for Citavi choose, RIS, EndNote, or BibTeX format. Citavi will recognize that you want to import the sources and have you check that the information is correct. To add a webpage, right-click anywhere in the browser window. Click Citavi Picker>Add webpage as reference. Citavi adds the page to the current project as an Internet document and copies the citation information if any is available. Usually, webpages don’t have much citation information but then you can display the webpage in the preview and copy the information to the fields yourself. Webpages often change or disappear without warning. To make sure you always have a copy of the information on the page, you can save it as a PDF file. In your browser, you’ll sometimes see the Citavi symbol next to the ISBN number for a book or the DOI number for a journal article. Click it to import the citation information for the source. The green checkmark tells you that the item has been added to your project. One thing to keep in mind: when you add journal articles to your project from a database or if you add them by clicking the Citavi symbol, only the citation information is added to your project. To gain access to the full text for the article you would need to click Find full text. This feature will work best in a university or organizational network or if you’re using EZProxy.
