Eliminating Duplicates 

If you run searches on the same topic using different information providers, it is almost inevitable that a reference may appear two or more times in your Citavi project. Duplicates waste time and space and distract you from your work.

How Citavi Determines If a Reference is a Duplicate

Citavi helps you find and eliminate duplicates. Citavi searches for duplicates according to the following criteria:

Searching for and Deleting Duplicates

  1. In the Reference Editor on the References menu, point to Find duplicates and then click Show duplicates only.
  2. Citavi displays the duplicate references as a selection.
  3. Compare the references and delete the duplicates.


Table view is ideal for comparing, selecting, and deleting duplicates.
