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.
- Click Add
- Select PDF upload.
- 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.
- 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.
