Eliminating Duplicates

If you run searches on the same topic using different information providers, it is almost inevitable that a reference may appear two or more times in your Citavi project. Duplicates waste time and space and distract you from your work.

How Citavi Determines If a Reference is a Duplicate

Citavi helps you find and eliminate duplicates. Citavi searches for duplicates according to the following criteria:

Searching for and Deleting Duplicates

  1. In the Reference Editor, on the References menu, select Show duplicates only.
  2. Citavi displays the duplicate references as a selection.
  3. Compare the references and delete the duplicates you don't need.


Table view is ideal for comparing, selecting, and deleting duplicates.
