Abbreviations of Organisations

Postby Ela » 2017-05-30 12:22

Systeminformationen: [ Citavi Version 5.0-5.4, Windows 7, Englisch, Google Chrome, MS Office 2016, - ]

Dear Citavi Team,

I am using Citavi 5 and want to format into APA style.

Now, in the running text, I would like to have the first time the reference of an organisation the full name with an abbreviation. in all following references, I would like to have only the abbreviation.

How can I do this?

I have already added the organisation and abbreviation under "Lists" -> "Persons and Organisations", but it does only show the full name of the organization in the formatted document.

Thanks a lot!

Dear Ela,

thank you for your question!

In a second step, please edit your citation style to use abbreviations for the references in your text.

In the Unkown document type, please edit all author components, see this video (no sound).
Those which are used for repetitions, should be formatted to use the abbreviation, the others to use both: the abbreviation and the full name of the organization.

Let me know if there’s anything else I can do for you. I’m happy to help.

Kind regards,
