Using Special Components
The citation style editor has several special components:
The Author, Editor or Organization element can be used instead of each individual element so that the first one that is available is listed. This makes it particularly suited to in-text citations or footnotes, but also means that you cannot combine it with suffixes such as "Ed."
Edition derived extracts the edition number from an edition such as "2nd improved and expanded edition" and lists only it in the bibliography.
Use First Footnote Number to refer back to a reference cited in a previous footnote, for example " Smith (see footnote 14)". To use this element, you must add a conditional template to the footnote rule set, using the Reference was cited in a previous footnote condition. Then add the First Footnote Number element to the template.
Index in Bibliography (for reference number styles)
Index in bibliography is used for numbered styles. Add this element to the In-text citation rule set and then, under File > Citation style properties > Bibliography, select Numbering and customize the numbering if you want. When you format the publication, Citavi inserts a number in the text that matches the entry in the bibliography. The bibliography lists references either in the order cited or alphabetically.
Year derived ensures that a year is always shown, even if the reference type otherwise uses a date. The year is derived by the following rules:
▪If the reference type uses a date and the date is filled in, Year derived shows the date.
▪If the reference type uses a year and the year is filled in, Year derived shows the year.
▪If the reference type has a parent reference type that uses a date, and the date is filled in, Year derived shows the date of the parent reference.
▪If the reference type has a parent reference type that uses a year, and the date is filled in, Year derived shows the year.
See the chapter Customizing Citation Keys. We recommend the option Use title if "Citation key" field is empty.
Abstract, Table of Contents, Evaluation, Keywords
Abstract, Table of Contents, and Keyword, as well as Evaluation (found on the Content tab) can be added to the Bibliography rule set templates if you want to create a project bibliography with additional information. However, this information will not appear if you're using the Word Add-In.
