Just Free versions, nothing else!



Citavi is a free reference management software for Windows. Using it, you can organize your research material at one place. This one can also be used to generate citations for your references. Using it, you can cite your references based on your research area. Let’s see how.

Citavi as Citation Generator Software:

As you create projects with various references, the references will be accessible from main interface. Click on any of the references and the citation (in default style) for the same will be viewed in a left panel. Now, to change the citation style, it provides a wide range of formats. Go to Citation menu > Citation style and click on Browse citation styles option. A new window will open up, select find and add style option from here. Now, you can find a citation style based on different criteria including Citation System(in-text citation, footnote, etc.), Language (English, Chinese, Italian, French, German, etc.), Subject Area (Economics, Earth Sciences, Applied Sciences and Engineering, Theology, etc.), and Name. As you mention these criteria, it fetches available citation styles. You can choose one from the list as per your requirement and it previews the reference in that format. It also displays information on selected citation style including distinctive feature. Finally, to add a style, click Add button. The formatted citation can be copied to add to your own research work.

Citavi is just not a feature rich reference management software, but also a citation maker software. In my opinion, it is a must-have software for researchers to organize references and generate citations for the same.
