  •  Zotero is a helper program: store references and insert in your word processor document. Zotero can help you to search for references online. Store references with your own notes, downloaded PDFs, images etc. References are searchable, and you can add your own keywords. References can be instantly re-formatted (e.g. to change from a numbered layout to Author-Date)
  • Editing Zotero Output StylesZotero output styles are written in the XML based Citation Style Language—unfortunately there is no GUI editor.This means it is possible to edit styles if you cannot find one that fits your requirements, but it is not easyIf none of the inbuilt styles does what you want, check the online style repository at http://www.zotero.org/stylesEven if none of them does precisely what you want it will generally be very much easier to modify an existing style which is almost right than to create an entirely new one from scratch.The next slide shows the beginning of a style definition written in CSL…

  • Check with your supervisor!If your discipline requires very complicated rules for referencelayout it may be tricky (occasionally impossible) to find a style inZotero which will satisfy the requirements.ALWAYS produce a small sample and show it to your supervisor,publisher etc. for approval before doing a large amount of work.Your supervisor is also the right person to ask for advice aboutdiscipline-related protocols such as anonymisation of any personaldata you have collected.Dont leave all this until the week before you are due to submit yourwork!
  • This course covers Getting references into Zotero. Adding extra content to your database (e.g. full text PDFs). Using Zotero to insert formatted references into documents. It doesn’t discuss selecting suitable online databases of references in any depth. If you are doubtful about where to start I would strongly recommend attending the two Webskills for Researchers courses and also visiting the University Library’s eresources page www.lib.cam.ac.uk/electronicresources/
