# Exporting references to another Citavi project

Andrea G. shared this question ago

I have to move various (hundreds) references from one project to another in order to update some information between the two projects. However, copying references creates duplicates.

Is it possible to copy/move the references between one project and another (with the same ISBN) by automatically replacing the references already present with the new ones?

Thank you!

Hello,

when exporting references to another project, Citavi offers an option "Do not copy or move references with the same ID (ISBN, DOI, PMID, arXiv)", to prevent duplicates. But unfortunately, it is not possible to automatically replace the existing references with the newer ones.

Best regards,

Anne
