Citation Style

Need Answer

I need a special citation style corresponding to the university guidelines for my paper. But I have not found one that matches the requirements.

In general the style looks like this (using Citavi example):

Citation in the text: (Brown et al. 2007, S. 11-13)

Journal article: Brown C., Trefil J., Caringella P (2007): Citing is easy. In Style Review. Vol 24 No. 2, S. 10-19.

Book: Sukowski R.W. (2009): Golden Rules for writing well. 2. Auflage. Universitiy Press, Toronto.

When using a website as a source, the web link and the date of the last access need to be given in the bibliography.

In the bibliography the second line has to be indented.

At the moment I am using the style "Behemoth (German)". In general the style matches the guidelines of the universitiy, but the style uses the "ebd." function. I tried to change the style but that did not work.

Does anyone know a matching citation style or how I can change the style I used?

Thanks for your help!

Hi Marisa

Please try "Ernst Reinhardt Verlag".


  • Multikonferenz Wirtschaftsinformatik (MKWI)
  • Psychotherapie im Alter (PiA)
  • Schattauer Verlag
  • Zeitschrift für Betriebswirtschaft




Hi Peter,

"Ernst Reinhardt Verlag" is the best match. The only thing missing is the dot at the end of every source in the bibliography.


Hello Marisa,

To make sure that the dot appears:

  1. Open the window for selecting citation styles: CTRL+Shift+F11.
  2. Select the desired style.
  3. Click "Edit".
  4. Give the style copy a new name.
  5. Click the "File" menu.
  6. Click "Citation Style Properties".
  7. Switch to the "Bibliography" tab.
  8. In the "General Settings" section, enter the dot in the "Final Character" field.
  9. Click "OK".
  10. Choose your new style in Citavi's Word Add-In.

Kind regards,
