Pros: Citavi is a reference manager which works well with various word processor software. However, Citavi is more than reference manager. It also provides tools for users to quote important texts, to write summary and to arrange the references according to your article's structure. After you have done those, when you are working with your article, Citavi will detect the current chapter of your article and will show you relevant references and knowledge (those quotations and summaries that you have made before). Very handy!

Citavi also provides a free student version which allows users to manage up to 100 references. This is very generous, considering Citavi has excellent features necessary for writing scientific articles.

Cons: Citavi does not work on Mac. Users need to install third party software to allow Citavi in a Mac. That's a shame since this limits the user base.

Dear Ganjar,

Thanks so much for your review! I'm very glad to hear that you like Citavi so much. Regarding Mac compatibility, you'll be happy to hear that we are currently working on an online version that will work with Mac and Linux computers. It should be available later this year.
