Curvenote Docs

# Citations

1. From a DOI: Simply search the document or article DOI, and add it to your article with one-click!
2. From a BibTex file: Export from your reference manager (e.g. Zotero, Mendeley, etc.) as a BibTex file, and drag and drop into Curvenote. If you want easy access to a reference manager, without downloading anything we recommend https://zbib.org/.

Once your citations have been added to your project, you can easily access them through the /cite command, and can click on the citation to see all the details - and you can click on it to navigate to the web article or document. For example, try clicking on this citation .

A digital object identifier (DOI) is a unique string that’s used to permanently identify an article or document on the web. If you are citing a paper, it will have a searchable DOI you can add to your Curvenote citation library.

• Locate the DOI on the article or document you want to cite, and copy it to your clipboard
• Place your cursor in the area you want to add the citation
• Access the citation menu by using the /cite command
• Enter the DOI in the search bar
• Select SEARCH
• If the appropriate article or document is shown, select CREATE CITATION

## #Adding citations from BibTex files

The bibtex (*.bib) file format is a storage format for citations, it is commonly used with $\LaTeX$, and can be exported from most reference managers.

### #Updating Citations

If you need to update your citation (e.g. fixing an author name, or adding a date), just re-export the bibtex from your reference manager, ensuring that the citation key for the reference is the same. Then just re-upload, the bibtex and all of the included reference will be updated💥.

In Curvenote, the references are stored as a Reference block, when you upload through a bibtex file it is given a unique name that is derived from the citation key you provide. The block name (used in the URL and must be unique for a project) is prefixed with ref- and is lowercased. This means the bibtex references are like Cockett2015-Elsevier becomes ref-cockett2015-elsevier. You can also use these keys to quickly look up a citation through the [[cite: command or the reference search panel.

## #Inserting multiple citations

• Place your cursor in the area you want to add the citation
• Access the references menu by using the /reference command
• Filter using the Search, and use the checkboxes to select the citation you would like to add
• Select INSERT CITATIONS

The citations will now be added!

## #Rearranging Citations

By default when citations are added through the [[cite: command, they are added as individual citations, these can be wrapped in brackets using the [] icon in the toolbar when the citation is selected. You can also drag citations into and out of citation-groups. In latex, these correspond to \citep{} and render slightly differently than if you use your own brackets.

Note that if you add the citation through the /reference command, then multiple citations will be added to a single group in one go.
