Image from store Zotero Connector
Description from store Zotero is a free, easy-to-use, open-source tool to help you collect, organize, cite, and share research. The Zotero Connector automatically senses content as you browse the web and allows you to save items to Zotero with a single click. If a PDF is available, the Connector can save it to your library to read later, and it can even save snapshots of webpages in case they change or disappear. Whether you're searching for a preprint on arXiv.org, a journal article from JSTOR, a news story from the New York Times, or a book from your university library catalog, Zotero has you covered with support for thousands of sites. Additionally, if you use a web-based proxy to access resources your institution subscribes to, the Zotero Connector can automatically redirect you through the proxy when you follow links to those sites from elsewhere on the web, making sure that you always have access to PDFs and other gated content. While the Connector can save most pages directly to your zotero.org account, for the full Zotero experience be sure to install the Zotero desktop app, which allows you to organize your references efficiently, insert citations automatically into Word, LibreOffice, and Google Docs, and much more. You can download Zotero for free from https://www.zotero.org/download. We are happy to help with any issues you encounter with the Zotero Connector, but we cannot do so through the Chrome Web Store. For bug reports, questions, comments, or help, please visit https://www.zotero.org/support/getting_help.

  • (2020-04-03) Sallie Bestul: Hello! I'm an avid user of Zotero and of Zotero's chrome plugin, howeve I've found it often doesn't recognize key websites as magazine/ news sites. Recently I tried to save an article from "Time.com" and it only recognized it as a website. This also happened with NPR, SF Chronical and others. What can I do to fix this?

  • (2020-02-12) Graciela Alejandra Martinez: Graciela Alejandra MartinezÚltima modificación: Hace 1 segundo Hola! he instalado nuevamente Zotero en mi computadora, debido a que se hizo un bak up en la misma, y al ingresar en mi cuenta sólo figuran algunos trabajos pero los más recientes no están. Alguien podría decirme si se puede recuperar esa base de datos? Gracias!!
  • (2020-02-10) Chris Henderson: The connector stops working every couple days. It will work fine for a while, but then randomly stops recognizing journal articles or retrieving full-text PDFs when I navigate to a journal's website (that had previously worked fine). Upon uninstalling and reinstalling the extension, it works again. I have had to do this several times. Not a deal-breaker (mainly because there isn't a better option to use while writing my dissertation), but more than a minor annoyance.
  • (2020-02-09) Jessica Kattermann: DOES NOT WORK! The ONLY reason I had to download this annoying program was because my Professor loves it, so of course they want their students to use it. I've installed, fixed and messed with this program so many times. I GIVE UP!
  • (2020-02-07) wildhan nur: cara mengatasi zotero trouble translating gimana?
  • (2020-02-01) 柯坤呈: I want to express my excellent experience with your team. This is a fantastic application for the academic person using. It's helpful for people collecting material for the journal website. However, I am still curious whether it is possible to release the mobile version for IOS or Android system. If yes, it would be fantastic!

  • (2019-11-08) Pablo Miller: If everybody writing PhD theses had Zotero, they would save a lot on school loans! Sure wish I'd had it in grad school.

  • (2017-03-28, v: José Pedro Correia: Import from ResearchGate
    Currently, when viewing a publication on ResearchGate, the Zotero Connector only offers the option to import as web page. However, all the metadata of the publication is there, often even the PDF. It would be nice to be able to properly import the publication using all the metadata available.

  • (2017-02-18, v: Z button has disappeared
    The 'Z' button has just disappeared from my browser (firefox), as far as I'm aware without me doing anything! The button to save things to Zotero is still there but I can't open Zotero to see those things. I've used Zotero without this problem for several months and don't think I've just updated anything. I'm panicking! How can I get the button back and open Zotero?
