Instantly Create a Bibliography from Zotero Desktop
Right-Click to Instantly Create Citation/Bibliography
To create a bibliography or a citations list in Zotero, highlight one or more references and then right-click (or control-click on Macs) to select “Create Bibliography from Selected Item(s)…”. Then select a citation style for your citation/bibliography format and choose either to create a list of Citations/Notes or a Bibliography. Then choose one of the following four ways to create your citation/bibliography:
Save as RTF will allow you to save the bibliography as a rich text file.
Save as HTML will allow you to save the bibliography as a HTML file for viewing in a web browser. This format will also embed metadata allowing other Zotero users viewing the document to capture bibliographic information.
Copy to Clipboard will allow you to save the bibliography to your clipboard to paste into any text field.
Print will send your bibliography straight to a printer.
Integrate Zotero with your Word Processor
Editing a document in MS Word, Google Docs or LibreOffice?
- Easy-to-use Word Processor Integration plug-ins are the most powerful way to automatically generate bibliographies and in-text citations.
- Plug-ins create dynamic bibliographies:
- insert a new in-text citation in your manuscript, and the bibliography will be automatically updated to include the cited item.
- Correct the title of an item in your Zotero library and with a click of a button the change will be incorporated in your documents.
Word Processor Integration plug-ins will automatically install when you download Zotero Desktop.
