  • What is wrong with my Zotero!
    Please upgrade to the latest version from zotero.org.". - Source: Reddit / 28 days ago
  • How do you guys do research?
    It's not a collection of sources or anything, but one resource I would like to recommend is Zotero. It's a note-taking and bibliographical organization tool. You can sort books and articles into folders given a topic, and apply tags. It helped me immensely while I was in college one thousand years ago. - Source: Reddit / about 2 months ago
  • Why do students have so much trouble with APA formatting?
    Why do any manual formatting of references? Zotero (zotero.org) is free, works on windows, macos, and linux, works with ms word, libre office writer, and google docs, and works with firefox, chrome, and safari. 1-2 minutes to download & install, 5-15 minutes of watching the tutorial videos, and then do your citations & references with just a few mouse clicks (apa, mla, chicago, journal specific formatting, etc.). - Source: Reddit / 5 months ago
  • Productivity tools: looking for recommendations!
    This is a little more specific, but if you write papers a lot as part of your work/school, Zotero can save you a ton of time (and errors) by auto-generating a bibliography. You can add articles from the website that they're on automatically, and then they're just in your library, where you can search for them based on whatever you remember about the title/authors/etc. :). - Source: Reddit / 6 months ago
