You can use your highlights (Atoms) in your work with automatically generated Citations that link you back to the source of your Atom. These Citations can also be used in a References Section so you can have a bibliography at the end of your writing. Here’s an overview on using Citations and References in your Workspace.
For a walkthrough of the following information head to YouTube:
Citations Property #
In Tables, you can make use of a Citations Property to automatically extract Reference Information from Sources you upload and import to your workspace, such as academic literature.
To add a Citations Property, select Citation from the Property Type Dropdown. Once chosen there are some different Citation Style options to choose from.
All new Papers added into your Table will have their Citation information automatically extracted and added into this Property.
To manually extract citation information use the Citations Menu and select ‘Auto Extract’ from the available options. You can also Edit the Citation and Copy it to use elsewhere.
Embedding Atoms with Citations #
In Text Editor Pages you can drag and drop Atoms into the Page. This action embeds your Atom into your Page, adding the Atom Text, creating a Citation and adding a References Section to the bottom of your Page.
To use your Atoms in a Text Editor Page, drag and drop them in from wherever you can see them in your workspace.
Once dropped into a Page, you will see the Atom text appear in your page, with a numbered citation next to it. This text is editable for you to integrate it into your writing.
Click the Citation to navigate back to the original source of your Atom. This Link takes you to the location of your Atom in the Source.
References Section #
When you Embed an Atom into a Page, at the bottom of your Page a References Section also appears. The Reference that appears here corresponds to the Citations extracted from your Source, and that list in the Table for the example shown here.
You can show/hide this References Section using the References Options Button
To show a References section once it’s been hidden you use the Toggle in the Page Options:
Each of your References can also be Edited, Copied or Auto-Extracted with the same options as for Citations by using the 3 Dot Button next to each Reference
Editing Citations & References #
You can edit the details of your references in the Reference Section or in the Citation Property Field in a table. You can manually add in the details and import or upload exported Reference information from other reference management tools.
