Site Licenses

We offer site licenses for colleges and universities. Site licenses are rentals and entitle the entire college or univer­sity community — students, faculty, and staff — to use Citavi for Windows or Citavi for DBServer. Users can install and use Citavi on all their computers for the duration of the contract. License keys are easy to request.

We're Happy to Advise You

The contract must be signed with one department (e.g. the library or technology services department) and must last at least one year. Discounts apply to longer contracts.

Site Licenses are Affordable

We can do this because we run a tight ship and don't spend money on advertising and promotion. Updates and upgrades are provided at no charge for the duration of the contract.

There is no Administrative Burden for You

We offer the program on our server, we send license keys, and we provide support. Site licenses include one free online training seminar for “ambassadors”, and we also provide templates for promotional and training materials you can print.

Citavi is the Market Leader in Germany

Most universities in the German-speaking world have site licenses, as does the prestigious Fraunhofer-Gesell­schaft research organization and the Austrian Institute of Technology. A list of our site license customers can be found here.
