Literature reference management with Citavi

The citation software helps you to:

  • import citations from databases and websites, save and export them
  • build and organize bibliographies
  • form citations for papers
  • take notes on articles and save them in your collection of citations
  • save and organize PDFs, screenshots, graphs, images, and other files for your research

The larger the literature part of your work (seminar work, Bachelor's or Master's thesis), the more valuable is a reference management system.

Geisenheim University has licensed the reference management system Citavi for their members.

Duration:     ca. 60 min
Appointments: You can make individual appointments, also in groups.
