Changing a Short Title

Citavi assigns a Short Title to every newly added reference. The short title serves as a unique identifier for the reference in your project.

Citavi forms short titles according to this pattern: Last names of the first two authors, year of publication, first five words of the title, e.g. Fu, Wei et al. 2018 – A wind energy generation replication.
