Citation Style requires different use of "country-specific" citation style.
I have been using citavi with quite some enjoyment. Now, however, I'm running into some 'advanced' issues with which I have no clue how to start dealing with. (I have had no experience with the programming of citation styles yet). I have one major issue and two smaller one's that I would like to ask about since I'm writing anyway. :)
1: I'm writing a work in English concerning German issues, citing a lot of German works but also works from other jurisdictions.
The citation style that I have been using until now is OSCOLA (as available via the style finding option), as I though this would be internationally more understandable. After digging into this style some more, I found out that foreign sources should be cited in their native format, as until now 90% of my sourcing is not from the UK, that represents a huge issue, I currently see no option in citavi to tell the program to use a different citation style entirely for a German court decision as opposed to an English court decision. Is there an effective way to let Citavi know, where a source is from and cite it differently accordingly?
2: OSCOLA and essentially every law reference style requires the literature list / reference list to be separated into several categories most importantly, legal decisions, should be listed separately from books & articles. The pre-programmed law citation styles I have tried until now don't seem to do this, which led me to do this manually in previous works. Is there however, a proper way to do this?
3. A relatively simple one; I would like to stop citavi from shortening my second reference of a case to just a number ( of the first footnote it was cited in), for example (349.), which is just impractical. I seem to recall an option to stop shortening second or third etc. citations, but I was wondering if this could be done only for a certain type of reference?
I'm sorry if these questions have been answered elsewhere!
I hope you can help, many thanks in advance.
