Using RSS Feeds

After you subscribe to a feed, the messages will appear on the Citavi Welcome Screen. You can decide for each item if the information is irrelevant and hide it, or you can choose to use the information.

Hiding or Showing RSS Items 

On the Welcome Screen, click the checkmark that appears in an RSS item Hide item. The item is hidden.

To show all hidden items, click RSS tools, and then click Show hidden RSS messages.

Adding Reference Information from an RSS Feed 

If you see an article or book in an RSS feed that you would like to save in your Citavi project, click the Citavi symbol. The icon appears automatically after ISBN numbers, DOI names, PubMed IDs and a few other identifiers. Citavi searches for the bibliographic information and asks which project the reference information should be saved to.

If the Citavi icon does not appear, click the item in the RSS feed to open the webpage containing additional information for the reference. There you can usually find a way to export the bibliographic information. You can then import the information in Citavi.
