Sharing Citation Styles

You can easily send a citation style you create yourself to other Citavi users:

Sharing citation styles with another person

  1. In the folder Documents\Citavi 6\Custom Citation Styles select the style.
  2. Attach the file to an email or make it available for downloading on a website, prefereably as a ZIP file.
  3. The recipient saves the file in the local folder Documents\Citavi 6\Custom Citation Styles.

Please note:

If a custom citation style contains errors, Citavi will automatically move the style to the folder Documents\Citavi 6\Custom Citation Styles\Disabled Styles upon starting. This folder contains the style and a text file with information on the error. If the error was caused by a problem in a programmed condition, component, or sorting, the code needs to be replaced. Current codes can be found online in our repository. If the error was caused by a duplicate CitaviCitationStyle ID, create a new GUID online. Open the style in a text editor and replace the CitaviCitationStyle ID in line 2.

Sharing citation styles in an organization

Save the citation style file on a network drive that all Citavi users can access. Enter the file path in the user-defined MSI setup in the Shared citation styles folder field.
