Link quote to other reference

Need Answer

Hello! Is it possible to automatically link a quote/summary in one paper to another reference? Say the introduction of a paper references another paper, is there a way to create a knowledge item but link it to the original source, not just the paper I am annotating? Other than going to the original source and copying over the quote as a summary knowledge item, etc.?

Thank you so much for creating such a wonderful, intuitive, and helpful software!!!

Hi Kathy,

Thanks for your question! We are happy that you like Citavi so much!

Linking knowledge items with other references or other knowledge items is a feature we wish to add to future Citavi versions.

Currently, there is only the option to copy a knowledge item.

Kind regards,



Thanks very much for your help!
