It is easy to format references in an article to meet any publisher's demands. It is also easy to create bibliographies for students.
I also like the ease with which I can quote sources and the fact that all citations in my documents appear in the Bibliography. What is more, it is easy to edit the citations, much easier than, for example, in programs that come with document writer programs.
It also helps my students organize their reading assignments and notes so that they can better prepare for exams.
I wish there were a way to sync my references across folders. It would also be helpful if there were a way to sync between computers. Only being able to have two downloaded versions of the program is quite difficult if one is moving between computers.
The free trial is a great opportunity to get to know that project. Once you hit 100 articles, you know it is time to buy.
Also, citavi's lifetime membership is comparable to a year or so with the competition. Then again, after a couple of years you will want to purchase an update; however, you do not HAVE to. This is a significant difference.
Citavi has helped me prepare articles for publication and bibliographies for my students.
