Automatically identify author name format when importing

Postby xizhang » 2013-12-16 17:50

Hi,

I think it would be really helpful if Citavi can automatically determine the proper format of the name of the authors when importing from BiBTex files. It is very common to encounter a bib file in which the author names do not follow a consistent format (i.e. some of them appear as "John Smith", others as "Smith, John"). In such case I have to import the file in Mendeley first, which is able to figure out the name formats automatically, and then export an intermediate bib file and then import that file into Citavi.

Thanks,
Xiubo

Hello Xiubo,

You are quite right. We are going to improve our import mechanism, BibTeX files should be imported correctly. Can't tell you any date yet, though.

Best regards
Patrick
