I need a bibliography which is divided into two or more groups, such as "Printed Sources" and "Secondary Sources".
To create these groups, you must use one of the custom fields. If you want, you can rename the custom field "source type" for example. Then, for each reference, enter what type of source it is. You may find it faster to use abbreviations, for example "P" for printed sources and "S" for secondary sources.
- In the Reference Editor, on the File menu, point to Print or save project bibliography and click Print grouped... (or press Ctrl+Alt+P).
- Select the custom field you are using for the source type and click OK to finish.
- Open the citation style you want to use in the Citation Style Editor.
- In the Citation Style Editor, on the File menu, click Citation style properties, and then click the Bibliography tab. Under Sorting, click Custom, then click Customize and select the custom field you are using for the source type.
- Format your document using the modified citation style. Citavi creates a list of references that is divided into groups.
- Insert the headings for each group manually. If you are using the Citavi 5 Add-In for Word, you need to first convert the Citavi fields to static text. Please note that once you convert to static text, your citations and bibliography will no longer be automatically updated. For this reason, we recommend performing this step just before you hand in your paper:
- Open the document containing Citavi fields.
- In Word, on the Citavi ribbon, click Citavi pane.
- On the Citavi ribbon click Convert > Save a copy as static text.
- Citavi creates a copy of the Word file. Save the file under a new name and insert the headings for each group manually in the new document.
