create Zotero items from a list of APA-style references

I am not sure if this has been discussed before. I have recently received a list of references in APA style from my supervisor. I would like to load the list to my Zotero library for future use. I wonder if there is a quick way to do it other than searching each item in Google Scholar and then save it in Zotero.
Many thanks

    Without DOIs there are some 3rd party options:
    but generally I'd recommend doing this with google scholar - in the end you'll safe time.
