Using the PMID to Update Reference Information

If you have many references with PMIDs that don't have complete reference information, you can use this add-on to automatically add the missing reference information. The add-on will overwrite any existing reference information with the information from PubMed.

  1. On the Tools menu, click Manage add-ons.
  2. Select the Use PMID to update reference information add-on. Then, click Install and restart Citavi.
  3. On the References menu, click Update bibliographic information using PMID.
  4. Select whether abstracts, table of contents, keywords, and notes should be overwritten or remain the same.
  5. Click OK.
  6. The add-on performs a search for every PMID found in the project and overwrites any existing reference information with the new information.
