Searching Online Resources

Some of the online resources in Citavi can also be searched through a web browser. Additionally, there are online resources that cannot be added to Citavi for legal or technical reasons.

However, many web-based online resources allow you to export your results directly to a reference management program. The name of the feature varies by database: Save to reference software, Export to citation manager, Download selected citations, Import to EndNote, etc. In all of these cases, you can export your search results into Citavi.

Citavi includes import filters for standard formats — RIS, BibTeX, and ENW (EndNote Tagged) — as well as custom import filters tailored to many individual online resources.
