Selecting a Citation Style

Should citations appear in the text or in footnotes? The citation style you select determines how citations look. Make sure you choose the appropriate citation style type before you begin inserting references or knowledge items into your Word document. You can change a style at any time, but the position of your citations cannot be changed later on.

  1. On the Citavi ribbon, click the name of the currently selected Citation style.
  2. Click Add citation style.
  3. Enter the name of the citation style in the Name field or use other criteria to search for a style that fulfills your requirements.
  4. Select the desired style and click Apply.
