We have expanded our license to include a cloud-based version of Citavi: Citavi Web
This is an improvement especially for Mac and Linux users, as it is accessed via web browser and works independently of the operating system. If you already have a Citavi account, you can use it to log in to Citavi Web. If you have not used Citavi before, simply register with your university email address. The license will then be activated automatically.
