The Technische Universität Berlin has concluded a campus licence agreement with Swiss Academic Software GmbH for the software "Citavi – Reference manager and Knowledge Organisation".
Employees and students of our university can use this licence for studying, teaching and research at work and on all personal computers.
The campus contract is currently valid until 30.11.2021.
Note on campus licence renewal
The Citavi licence is usually renewed by the TU Berlin every two years (see expiration date). After the start of a new licence period, the personal campus licence in Citavi also needs to be renewed. To do this, log into your Citavi account once using the following link: Link to Citavi
This will automatically update the licence in your Citavi installations.

Citavi 6 was released on February 20,2018. With Citavi 6, you can now store your projects online in the Citavi Cloud, allowing you to work easily from different computers and collaborate with others in a team. However, the program itself is still desktop-based. There are also some minor functional changes. The user interface remains almost unchanged.
Switch to Citavi 6 in 5 steps
With the help of the Citavi pre-set file, you can transfer some of the pre-sets directly into your Citavi version. For example, the Knowledge Portal Primo and other important Berlin and supraregional catalogues are pre-set.

After de-registration or after leaving as an employee, alumni can continue to use the licence as long as the current campus licence period runs.
If the campus licence is renewed, all alumni with their university e-mail address must apply for a new licence key and re-install it. From this point on, alumni will no longer be able to take advantage of Citavi Pro, but the Citavi project data will be preserved. You can use the free version or buy the Pro version with a 50% discount.
