-====== Reference Management ====== 
-This page is about reference management using Zotero. A shortcut to this page: [[http://​palabas.org/​ref|palabas.org/​ref]] 
-===== Collection ===== 
-{{ ::​zoterologo.jpg?​50|}} 
-For your desktop or laptop, install Zotero to build your collection as well as manage your references and digital resources. Steps: 
-  * Download [[https://​www.zotero.org/​download/​ |Zotero Standalone]] 
-  * Install the appropriate **browser connector** (see bottom of the Zotero download page). ​ 
-Zotero enables you to automatically populate a bibliographic entry by searching external databases (or by entering an ISBN, PMID, or DOI), thus avoiding the tedious job of manually typing or cutting-and-pasting information. Here's where you'll put in the ISBN, PMID or DOI info:

-\\ 
-Zotero also parses the metadata from a pdf file by simply dragging a file to the Title column of your collection. 
-\\ 
-\\ 
-Another particularly nifty functionality of Zotero is the integration of [[https://​unpaywall.org/​|Unpaywall]]. Everytime you save a journal entry from a site with paid subscription,​ Zotero can look for a legally free version of the same article using the Unpaywall database. Or, if you already have a journal entry with no attached pdf copy, you may right click on it and "Find Available PDF" will present itself as one of the options. 
-\\ 
-\\ 
-Recommended:​ If you're only starting with Zotero, test it well using entries for diverse source or media types. \\ 
  
-**Tip**: ​  ​organize collection by "​libraries"​ for easy export to other repositories or for back-up or sharing with other researchers. 
----- 
-===== Sync===== 
-Once Zotero is installed in your desktop or laptop and you've familiarized yourself with it well, consider syncing your data or files with a remote repository like your own WebDAV server. You can configure this under Preferences. 
-{{ ::​zotero_sync.png?​nolink&​300 |}} 
- 
-If you've installed Zotero on different computers, this setup enables you to harmonize your collection. Make sure pressing "​Verify Server"​ gets you a positive response. 
- 
-Another option for syncing resources is via [[https://​zotero.org|zotero.org]],​ especially if you don't have sizable data or files. 
- 
-[[https://​zotero.org|zotero.org]] also allows you to form groups for sharing, editing references, and maintaining **group libraries**. Consider setting your group as private if you're concerned about privacy. ​ 
- 
-===== Backup ​ and Export===== 
-Syncing already provides you with automatic backup. Manual backup can also be done by exporting your collection or library to some other storage media. "​Export Library"​ (click File | Export Library) provides options to tranform your collection into different reference formats and schemas. 
- 
-===== Publishing Entries on Eprints===== 
-Once a collection is exported, it can be imported and published via Eprints (or any other repository for that matter). The recommended format in this case is BibTeX. Here's a sample screencast:
