Force11 Workshop for Zotero for Datasets?

edited October 3, 2022
FORCE11 "is a community of scholars, librarians, archivists, publishers and research funders that has arisen organically to help facilitate the change toward improved knowledge creation and sharing."

I'm considering proposing a half-day workshop on implementing support for dataset import to Zotero for this year's FORCE2022 conference. Proposal deadline is October 20th, workshops would be Dec. 5. The goal would be to fix up existing data repository translators and add new ones.

Two questions about this, mainly for the Zotero team:
1) A precondition for this would be, I think, for the dataset item type to be officially available in Zotero by December -- is that going to be the case?
2) Would anyone else be interested in co-facilitating this -- either from the Zotero team or anyone else comfortable with translator coding.

I think this would create a lot of excitement and I'd love to see it happen.
  • A precondition for this would be, I think, for the dataset item type to be officially available in Zotero by December -- is that going to be the case?
    Sure, we can make that happen.
  • Awesome -- thanks! I'll post here if it gets accepted -- We have a fully fleshed out proposal on the zotero-bits repo and CSL dataset already exists, so this should be ready to implement, but obviously lmk if any questions come up.
