Citavi 6 Released with Cloud Projects and Expanded Teamwork Options

Wädenswil, Switzerland — February 20, 2018 — Users of the leading reference management program in the German-speaking world can now share, save, and work on projects in the cloud.

Citavi 6 gives users the option to leverage Citavi’s unparalleled reference management, knowledge organization, and task planning features in the cloud. Licensed users can save an unlimited number of attachments up to 50 MB.

Citavi 6 has also been optimized for teamwork. New features include the ability to work on cloud projects with an unlimited number of users, differentiated project permissions, a chat feature, task delegation, and annotation filtering. Citavi 6 is suited to group publications, research proposals, and centralized PDF libraries.

Additional improvements in Citavi 6 include an indexed full-text search in cloud projects, improved speed, and the ability to work with add-ons for specialized features.

About Citavi

First released in Switzerland in 2006, Citavi today has over a million users worldwide. In addition, more than 300 universities have site licenses for Citavi, allowing their students, faculty, and staff to use Citavi for Windows at no cost.

Citavi’s success lies in its ability to go beyond traditional reference management programs to support each step of the academic research process. Citavi helps with all research tasks, from searching for sources, to annotating PDF articles and excerpting quotations, to planning tasks and creating outlines, all the way to finalizing a formatted publication.

Although initially developed for academic users, Citavi is increasingly being adopted by companies, who want to make information they find available long term. In business settings, Citavi is often used to create a centralized repository for external research articles the company has collected.
