      Mendeley vs Citavi opinions
      Some users think Mendeley is a great alternative to Citavi, some don't.
      Citavi 5 has far more functionalities than Mendeley. Mendeley can not search among annotation, it can not distinguish between different kind of notes (direct, indirect quotations, comments, main ideas, etc.) and more other functions.
