  2. Under Export Format, select Bibliographic Software.
  3. The exported results are opened in a new browser tab. Press Ctrl+A and then press Ctrl+C to copy all entries to the Clipboard.
  4. Switch to Citavi and open a project or create a new project.
  5. On the File menu, click Import.
  6. Select Text file and click Next.
  7. Select RIS and then click Add. Then click Next.
  8. Select Use text from the Clipboard and then click Next.
  9. In the import window that appears, you can choose which references you want to import. To import all the references, click Add to project. To add specific references only, first select the corresponding checkboxes and then click Add to project.
  10. Select any appropriate import options.
  11. Click OK to complete the import.

Some reference types (for example, Hearing) are not available in Citavi. Any references without a corresponding reference type will be be given the Unknown reference type.
