Citavi 5 editions

Citavi 4 Editions

Until now there were three editions that you could unlock with a license key: Citavi Pro for individual users, Citavi Reader and Citavi Team for workgroups.

 

Citavi 5 Editions

In Citavi 5 we have combined Citavi Pro and Citavi Team into Citavi for Windows.

The ability to read team projects with more than 100 references has now been integrated into Citavi Free.

Citavi for DBServer is our new edition and is meant for large teams.
