Find sources for your paper

Instead of googling for hours, use Citavi to search your library's catalogs and research databases for new sources. This helps you find the right texts faster and saves you time and trouble.

Cite books, journal articles, webpages, etc.

Use Citavi to cite any source you need for your papers. From academic monographs to webpages – with Citavi's Picker you can send citation information for books and webpages from your browser to your project. No more piles of paper or lost print-outs. All with just a click.

Keep on track and get organized

Create an outline in Citavi. While you read, assign your sources, important quotations, and your own ideas to different sections. Refine your outline as you go. When it's time to write, you'll have everything at hand: all your references, quotations, and ideas.

Plan for progress

Not everything is equally important. A quick look at a book's title or a journal article's abstract helps you set priorities. With Citavi's Task Planner you always know when you want to work on what, and the tasks you've already completed.

Analyze and cite

Reading a long text? Great! Make note of the most important findings and add quotations to Citavi. Insert them in your paper with just a click, and Citavi will add a citation and an entry to the bibliography.

Citavi offers over 11,000 citation styles – the style you need is sure to be one of them: APA, Chicago, MLA, Turabian – whatever you need.
