Zotero is a reference management application designed to store and manage references. You can also use Zotero to create citations in your documents and create bibliographies, in your chosen citation style.
Zotero can save you time by helping you organise and keep track of your research and in the preparation of your work.
Zotero has launched Zotero 5.0. Starting with the release of Zotero 5.0, Zotero for Firefox and Zotero Standalone have been replaced by a single standalone application for users of all browsers. A new Zotero Connector for Firefox, similar to the extensions available for Chrome and Safari, allows saving to the Zotero application or zotero.org in a single click.
If you’re using Zotero for Firefox, you’ll be automatically upgraded to the new Zotero Connector for Firefox , and you’ll need to install the standalone Zotero application — either 4.0 or 5.0 — to access your data going forward.
If you’re already using Zotero Standalone, you can continue using Zotero as you were before — with some new features available in the Zotero Connector for your browser.
This is the cloud based version of Zotero. You can log into it and create an account easily. Use the online account to sync your Zotero library to the cloud and between computers. It also allows for sharing of references between accounts.
