Citavi supports you with every step of the academic research process:

Searching for Sources

Citavi provides you access to thousands of world-class databases and library catalogs. After performing your search, you can easily add results to Citavi. For the books stacked on your desk, you can just enter the book's ISBN number and Citavi retrieves the bibliographic information for you.

Citavi's Task Planner lets you keep track of what you need to do when for each reference in your project. With one click you can create a task list for your next library visit.

It's easy to organize your sources using categories and keywords. Evaluate the texts you're working with, note down your own comments and ideas, and keep track of questions, defini­tions, hypotheses, results, etc.

Topics: Applying Keywords, Assigning Categories, Annotating Texts, Excerpting


The last step is naturally a finished paper or publication. Citavi works with almost all word processors. Just click to insert references, quotations, and thoughts into your document. Citavi automatically creates a bibliography for the references cited in your paper.
