Keyword List

System information: [ -, -, -, -, -, - ]

Hi Citavi Team!

I just used the citavi picker and imported the information from my university libary by clicking on ISBN picker button of the regarding book. It worked well but my problem is that, i dont want the citavi picker import the keywords.

Because when picker imports the keywords from libary, these keywords will be appear in my keyword list view!
So i dont want that, beacuse i just want the keyword which are defined by me only.

This take a lot of efforts as i have to search the unwanted keywords that were automatically added to my keyword list and delete it manually one by one.

Is there any solution to this?

Regards,
Nazura

Hello Nazura,

at the moment, Citavi can handle more that 1,300 different citation styles. There are thousands more out there in the wild.
My answer is: it depends
- If the research is to be published in a journal: choose the style of the journal
- If it is a doctoral dissertation: ask you professor
- If it is going to be published by a publishing house: ask them, or check with other titles in the field
- If it is competely up to you, nobody else has got a say: Choose whichever you like best!

There are four different types:
1. Harvard styles use in-text citations. They are also called author-years styles:

2. Oxford styles use footnotes. Sometimes there is no bibliography at the end:

3. Vancouver styles use numbers. Titles in the bibliography may be ordered alphabetically or in order of appearence:

4. The others use citation keys:
