Zotero for Word-, OpenOffice- and LaTeX-users

Do you write articles that cite other papers? Are you tired of struggling with citations and reference lists or with tools that are supposed to help you with these? Then this workshop is for you.

The free open source reference management tool Zotero helps you build your own reference library, organize it, share it, collaborate with other researchers and easily cite as you write using different citation styles as required by the journals. Master Zotero and you will free a lot of mind space and valuable time for the more analytical and creative bits of your research process.

At the end of the workshop you will be introduced to bibliographies in LaTeX and how to use Zotero to convert metadata to a suitable format.

In this hands-on course you will learn to:

  • Build your own reference library by downloading or entering bibliographic information about your sources.
  • Add citations and bibliographies in Word, OpenOffice or LaTeX and convert them to different styles
  • Create a group library and collaborate with your peers

Please bring a laptop with you to the course. It is recommended to create a Zotero account and install Zotero for Firefox or Zotero Standalone, prior to the course.

No registration needed for this workshop, just show up!

Coffee and tea will be served.
