A great way to increase the visibility of your published work.

  2. I’ve been using Citavi for almost half a year and find it really doing its job. I’ve got so far a database with almost 200 articles, we’re storing all of them together in one db for the whole institute, which include more than 1400 titles. So far everything goes OK. Categories are nicely organised and the possibility of importing data basing on DOI or ISBN useful. Bibtex export works good as well. However, what I do not undestand, is why in personal comments to single articles spaces for plain text and graphics are divided. It’s a bit artificial for me. Anyway, IMO Citavi is totally worth giving it a try.
    Best regards!
    PS. I’ve actually even written a short post about Citavi on my blog, although it is only in Polish 🙂

    • Hi Kasia,
      Thanks for sharing your opinion on Citavi and for linking to your blog. Citavi would probably appreciate the feedback if you wanted to share it with them.
