Reference management under OS X and Linux

Citavi is a Windows only application. The publisher is currently working on a platform-independent web version.

Citavi in the VDI

Citavi is installed as standard in all computer labs in the computing center and on all employee PCs. Students and employees can also access Citavi from home via the computing center's virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) and thus use Citavi independently of their own computer's operating system.


Otherwise, we recommend using open source reference management software such as Zotero. Click here for an overview of various reference management programmes with their pros and cons.

In our class entitled "Web-based Reference Management" (Webbasierte Literaturverwaltung), we provide an introduction to Zotero.

In our class with the Fachschaft WIAI entitled "Reference Management with LaTeX" (Literaturverwaltung mit Latex), we provide an introduction to JabRef.
