Tips for Names of Persons

Citavi helps you enter difficult names.

Enter the name in the corresponding field, e.g. Author. Enter the last name first, then enter a comma, and then enter the first name. Use semicolons to separate multiple people.

Use the author editor to avoid errors, for example for persons with more than three first names. The editor opens when you click the blue field name or press F9.

Do not enter any role designations, such as "ed." The citation style will add these abbreviations automatically.
