The Word Add-In at a glance

Select your citation style in the Citavi Word Add-In

Even if you already selected a citation style in your Citavi project, you will still need to select the citation style in Word (see screenshot). Otherwise, the formatting will not be applied.

Pick a citation method before you start writing

Before you insert your first citation, decide whether you want to use an in-text citation style or a style that uses footnotes. See our citation type overview.

Do not alter fields inserted by the Word Add-In

If you want to enter page numbers, select the reference in Citavi's Word Add-In and click Insert advanced. Enter the page numbers in the Page name field. Always enter the entire page range to ensure that citation style formatting is applied correctly.
