- Getting Started
Zotero is a powerful reference and citation manager with many powerful capabilities. But, more than that, it is also a research and collaboration tool. See http://www.zotero.org for full documentation.
It can be used to capture reference metadata from web sites and databases compliant with metadata standards. Set up Zotero on your computer and then check out Google Scholar, Agora and the Biblio library (copy on this site).
Zotero is very flexible. It is installed as a standalone program with connectors for Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome and Safari. For citation, it can be used with LibreOffice Writer, NeoOffice Writer or Microsoft Word.
We are using the Zotero 5 series in this activity - If you are using an older version of Zotero, please read this Blog article.
Read on to see how this tool can improve your workflow writing scientific and other academic papers.
