Zotero! for Wrangling Citations

Zotero and Word

Be sure to install the Word plugin from Zotero Word Processor Plugins.

These examples are from Word for Mac; the Windows plugins work well, but may appear a little differently.

Once the Zotero toolbar is installed, you may have a menu item just for Zotero, it may be under "Add ons," or in a different menu. Why? Depends on your version of Word, your operating system, etc.
