Periodical covers

Postby Marcin.Krygier » 2017-02-14 13:48

System information: [ Citavi Version 5.4, Windows 7, Other language, Firefox 43 or newer, MS Office 2013/365 64Bit, Acrobat 9 ]

I have a huge collection of journal papers I'm trying to arrange into various projects. I have imported them into Citavi, but entries for many need to be formatted manually. Now, I am a bit OCD which means I need every paper to be assigned its journal cover art. Is there a way to assign the cover art to the journal entry in the periodicals list, so that when I define an article as appearing in a specific journal, its cover art will be added automatically? What I have in mind is a procedure similar to what happens when you add a contribution to an edited book that already has a cover art assigned.

Hi,

unfortunately I see no automatic way of doing this, as I don't know of any source that provides cover art for journals if queried with a DOI or ISSN. Do you have image files of the covers?

Best regards
Sebastian

It would be enough if you could tie the cover art with the periodical entry in the periodical list in Citavi - one for the wish list perhaps?

Hi,

the cover images are stored for each reference individually, not for periodicals. Changing that would mean substantial changes to the database structure. I'm happy to add the wish to our internal wishlist, but with many other more pressing features being developed, the chances of this function becoming reality in the foreseeable future are rather slim.

Best regards
Sebastian
