The Citavi Word Add-In is an Add-In for Microsoft Word 2016, 2013, 2010, or 2007 (32 bit or 64 bit for all versions). With the Word Add-In you can insert references and quotations from your Citavi project into Word. The bibliography is generated automatically.

The Publication Assistant lets you insert references into a document if you are working with OpenOffice 4, LibreOffice 4 or 5 (32 bit for all versions), and the following TeX editors: Led, LyX, TeXMaker, TeXnicCenter, TeXstudio, TeXworks, WinEdt or WinShell. The Publication Assistant can also be used with Word if desired.

The Citavi Picker is an extension for your browser or PDF reader that lets you transfer information, webpages, or PDF files to your Citavi projects. The Citavi Picker browser extensions require Internet Explorer version 10 or later, Firefox version 30 or later, or Google Chrome version 30 or later. The Picker for Adobe Reader or Adobe Acrobat require version 10 or later of either program.

Memory Requirements

Citavi projects are loaded to RAM when the project is opened. Projects should contain fewer than 100,000 references so that they do not overload the RAM and so that they can be loaded quickly.

Administrator Rights

In order to install Citavi, you must have administrator rights for your computer. Talk to your system administrator if you do not.

Requirements for Using Citavi in a Team
