The cloud version allows you to access your source library across multiple devices. You can also add a browser extension in Chrome or Safari for an easy, one-click way to save your articles. Zotero features:

  • Store and retrieve your citation information
  • Store downloaded links or PDFs to get back to your sources
  • Organize your sources into folders
  • Format in-text citations, endnotes, and footnotes in your chosen citation style
  • Create bibliographies in your chosen style

All the fields in Zotero are fully editable, so you can make corrections and take notes directly in Zotero.
