Programme functions

  • Citavi picker: Copy titles found on the Internet into Citavi with one click.

Checklist for installing and setting up Citavi:

  • Important: Citavi runs only on Windows.
  • Download  Citavi 6. You can use a fully functional version and save 100 references per project, even without registering.
  • Request a license key and register with Citavi. Citavi will send you the license key by e-mail; this e-mail will also explain how and where to enter the license key.
  • To search specialist databases licensed by the University Library, you need to import the Citavi settings file (CSD, 3,8 KB) once. This can only be downloaded from within the university network. Right-click to save the Citavi settings file on your computer. Then import it into Citavi (Menu > Tools > Import/Export Settings).
