Importing References in a Nonstandard Format

At first glance, some online resources appear to offer search result downloads in a standard format. After unsuccessfully trying to import the file, you may find that the data in the file does not conform to the standard. Other online resources might only export information in their own format. In both cases, you must use a custom import filter.

Please note:

In rare cases, importing search results into Citavi will not be fully successful. If you open the export file with a word processing program, you will see why: Data may be incomplete or inconsistently formatted. In such cases, please inform the database provider.
