Important (for Mac users): Citavi only works under Windows. Citavi Web is not yet included in the university licence. For Mac users who do not want to do without Citavi, there is the option of using Citavi via a so-called virtual machine on the Mac. You can find instructions on how to do this in the Citavi manual.

Checklist for installing and setting up Citavi:
