This course features a live demonstration of the tool Zotero and everything you need to get you started with the software (installation + features). Zotero is an open-source reference management software, that is, it helps you to organize and cite research literature. Besides its awesome features (see the next section), it is also developed by an independent, nonprofit organization with no financial interest in your data.

Zotero has an unmatched ability to save high-quality publication data from websites, journal articles, newspapers, and more, or to retrieve publication data for PDFs you drag in. Word processor integration for Word, LibreOffice, and Google Docs makes it easy to manage citations and bibliographies as you write. A built-in PDF reader lets you mark up PDFs and then extract cited quotations and comments directly into notes or word processor documents. Zotero can automatically add publication data by DOI or ISBN and find open-access PDFs when you don’t have access to a paper. You can create advanced searches — say, all articles mentioning a certain keyword added in the last month — and save them as auto-updating collections. When you open a paywalled page in your browser, Zotero can automatically redirect you through your institution’s proxy so that you can access the PDF. Zotero can even warn you if try to cite a paper that was retracted.
