But not many academics know how to use it.
Here's how to get started 👇
Zotero 101: A step-by-step guide with visuals 🧵
Download the software and install it.
You'd also want to install the Zotero browser extension.
Open Zotero after you have installed it.
Its interface will look something like this 👇
Click on File and select New Collection.
Choose the name of the collection that's appropriate to your project/article/dissertation.
For the purposes of this tutorial, I am using "World Literature."
Now open Google Scholar, and look up "World Literature" or whatever is relevant to your work.
It will show you a bunch of search results.
You can also look it up in your university's library, or any other database.
Click on the small Zotero button in the top right corner.
Zotero will open a small dialog box with all the search results.
Select the sources that are relevant to your project.
