Duplicating a Reference
Sometimes you may want to use an existing reference as a starting point to speed up the process of adding similar references, for example when recording multi-volume works or several articles from a journal. In such cases, Citavi lets you create a copy of an existing reference where you only need to make a few minor modifications.
- Open the reference you want to duplicate in the Reference Editor.
- On the References menu, click Duplicate.
- Citavi creates a copy of the reference and adds the prefix [Copy] to the title. Make the necessary changes to the copy and then remove the [Copy] prefix.
- To duplicate the reference again, return to the original reference (you can use the History feature for this) and repeat steps 2-3.
