Importing PDF files

You can import PDFs of scholarly articles directly into Citavi. For each PDF, Citavi creates a new reference and searches for its bibliographic information using the DOI name or other ID, as long as one is present in the first five pages of the PDF.

  1. Click Addnew_o_black
  2. Select PDF upload.
  3. Click Search to select the file to import, or drag and drop the file(s) into the upload box. You can upload multiple PDF files.
  4. The import will run in the background. As soon as the import is complete, a notification window will appear with a link to the new reference.
