Reference management with Citavi for scientists (February 7th, 2023)


Event for participants without prior knowledge of Citavi.

Managing sources and citations in the academic writing process requires a lot of attention, time and care. Reference management programmes can help here. In this workshop you will learn to use the programme Citavi.

  • How do I search for literature in reference management programmes?
  • How do I import title data and documents?
  • How do I structure literature based on an outline?
  • How do I create knowledge elements such as image citations from PDFs?
  • How do I insert footnote and text citations into my text?
  • How do I work with Citavi in a team?

You will get answers to these questions in the workshop and can apply your new knowledge directly to practical examples.
