Changing Citation Styles

The citation style determines the formatting of your bibliography: abbreviated or full author names, italicized journal titles, "see also" references in the footnotes, etc. You can seamlessly switch to other styles from our library of thousands of styles.


Make sure to also select the style you want to use in the Word Add-In and not only in Citavi. Please also note that citation style changes will not be displayed if you are using Track Changes in Word and the No Markup option is enabled.
