Reference Management with Zotero

Zotero is a free, open-source tool to help you collect, organize, cite and share research.

Zotero creates references and bibliographies for any text editor, and directly inside Word, LibreOffice, and Google Docs. With support for many citation styles, you can format your work to match any style guide or publication.

Zotero can optionally synchronize your data across devices, keeping your notes, files, and bibliographic records seamlessly up to date. It lets you co-write a paper with a colleague, distribute course materials to students, or build a collaborative bibliography. You can share a Zotero library with as many people you like, at no cost.

Zotero is open source and developed by an independent, nonprofit organization.
