Retrieving metadata from given websites

Hi all,

Recently I'm reorganizing my papers with zotero, whereas using folders/labels before.

Each of my paper PDF files is named by the title. When I choose "Retrieve metadata for PDF", sometimes zotero returns information from arXiv.org. However, I'd rather metadata data engaged with the conference for published papers instead.

So is there any way to give a higher priority for some specific source of retrieving metadata? Many thanks!

    It depends on what information is available in the PDF. Can you provide a link to a specific PDF that didn't do what you want? (You can also email to support@zotero.org with a link to this thread if that's not possible.)

    Hi, thanks for your reply!

    Here is a case that I tested:

    The paper title is: Energy and Policy Considerations for Deep Learning in NLP.
    I downloaded the PDF file through this link: http://arxiv.org/abs/1906.02243.
    And this paper is also published at ACL Anthology: https://www.aclweb.org/anthology/P19-1355.pdf

    Zotero retrieved the metadata from arXiv link, but I'd rather that from ACL Anthology. So is this limited by the metadata from the file I downloaded?
