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 in our FAQs (in German only). 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.
