Referencing and Citing

Your introduction to referencing and citing.

Getting started with Zotero

Zotero is free, open source, reference management software. It manages bibliographic data and related research materials (such as PDFs), generates in-text citations, footnotes and bibliographies and can integrate with word processors such as Microsoft Word, LibreOffice, Writer and NeoOffice.

Note: Zotero v5.0 was released in July 2017 and the help information on this page is in the process of being updated.

Version 5.0 is only available as a "standalone" application and the Firefox plugin version is no longer supported. If you currently have the Firefox plugin version it is strongly recommended that you install v 5.0.


Creating bibliographies, in-text citations and footnotes

Zotero automatically generates bibliographies, in-text citations and footnotes in word processors such as MS Word and OpenOffice.
