Entering a License Key
After installation, Citavi initially runs as Citavi Free. This version allows you to create as many projects as you want, each limited to 100 references. Citavi Free has no other functional limitations and no expiration date.
If you need to store more than 100 references in a project, you will need Citavi Pro or Citavi Team. Purchasing a license key allows you to unlock your copy of Citavi Free into Citavi Pro or Citavi Team, and you can continue working with data that you have already entered into existing projects. Citavi license keys are available from the Citavi website and from resellers.
