1 Citavi – Adding References – Articles from EBSCOhost Databases
2 Open your Citavi project to the Reference Editor workspace – you may need to click on the References tab to get there.
3 Click on the drop-down Reference menu and select Journal article
4 On the Library home page, click the button for Databases A-Z.
5 Then click on the EBSCOhost database that you want to search – Academic Search Complete in this case.
6 Enter your search term – enclosed in quotation marks if it is a phrase – limit your results to Scholarly (Peer Reviewed) journals if you prefer, and click the Search button.
7 If the EBSCOhost brief record includes a DOI (digital object identifier), just click on the Citavi symbol next to it.
8 Citavi writes available citation information into the open reference record, which you then should review to revise or complete if needed – here, for example, delete the repeated periodical title. Then click on File and Save project.
9 Citavi includes links in the Preview pane on the right to display the source page, in this case the EBSCOhost record, which in turn will link to the article if available in full text.
10 Even better if the article is available online in full text, you can add it directly into your Citavi reference record by returning to the EBSCOhost record and clicking on a full text link.
11 If the article is in PDF format, right click your mouse over the article frame, select Citavi Picker, and then click Add as local file to the current Citavi reference.
12 Now your reference record includes the article itself.
13 Sometimes an article will be available through EBSCOhost only in HTML format.
14 In this case, once you’ve exported the citation information to Citavi, in the Preview pane click on Always preview this file immediately.
15 After the EBSCOhost record displays in the Preview pane, click on the HTML Full Text button to retrieve the article. Next click on Click here to save a copy of this Web page as a PDF.
16 Citavi converts the EBSCOhost pages, including the article, to PDF format for use within the reference record at your convenience.
17 If the EBSCOhost brief record does not have a DOI, click on the title to open the full record,
