    Zotero: Citation and Research Management

    Zotero is a free research and citation management tool that helps users "collect, organize, cite, and share research."

    Zotero allows users to:

    • Store their citations and files in one place
    • Organize their citations into collections
    • Add or import citations to their Zotero account from databases, search engines, or personal collections (often with one click, or dragging-and-dropping)
    • Automatically create citations and bibliographies in Microsoft Word

    Zotero offers support for over 8,000 citation styles, allowing users to format their citations and bibliographies properly for any style guide or publication. You can even synchronize your data across multiple devices, allowing you to keep your research up-to-date no matter where you are working.
