Sending References by Email

Occasionally you may want to let a colleague know about a reference or even send them a copy of the article that is saved as an attachment in Citavi. To do this, you can use the Send reference by email feature. To use this feature you must have an email program installed on your computer.

  1. In the Reference Editor switch to the reference you would like to send by email.
  2. On the References menu, click Send reference by email. Citavi starts your email program and creates a new message with the bibliographic information for the reference. The information is also exported as a RIS file and attached to the message. The recipient can import the bibliographic information using the RIS file. Files attached to a reference are also added as an attachment to the email.
