Zero In on Research Control With Zotero

Filed under
Software

With countless high school and college students heading back to school at roughly this time of year, now is a good time to get acquainted with Zotero, a great cross-platform tool for collecting, organizing, citing and sharing research sources.

I have spent considerable time working in academic settings helping students manage their research assignments. Since its introduction in 2006, open source Zotero proved to be one of the few really useful applications for keeping track of information regardless of the user's OS preference.

Zotero is a first cousin to Endnote for the Windows platform. It's a great free alternative, however -- for managing academic and corporate research references, generating citations and creating bibliographies within documents.
