Introduction to Citavi

This session provides an introduction to the basic features of the reference management software Citavi. In a short presentation combined with interactive exercises, you will learn how to gather and organise your sources and compile a formally correct and consistent bibliography with Citavi.

If you wish to bring your own notebook, we ask you to install Citavi 6 in advance. Please make sure that the picker for your browser and the plugin for your word-processing programme (Word, Libre Office etc.) have been installed successfully, since we cannot offer technical support in the course. Should you have problems with installation, please contact studIT.

An important prerequisite to successful participation in a course on managing references is basic knowledge of different publication types. Check your knowledge with this short quiz.
This course is targeted at new users or those with only basic knowledge of the programme. The language of instruction is English.

Please note that Citavi is only compatible with Windows. For users of other operating systems (Mac, Linux) we recommend Zotero.
