IPCC Sixth Assessment Report - The Working Group II

Is it possible to add support for saving citation data and PDFs for the latest U.N. climate change report? (https://www.ipcc.ch/report/ar6/wg2/)
  • They should really make these easier to save, but yes, we'll manually add support soon.
  • I agree, this should be easier. Thank you
  • They're usually pretty easy to add from here, but they haven't been uploaded yet.

  • @ngamagn: Not sure what you mean by that. That would appear to get you extremely basic metadata. (You could do slightly better by pasting the ISBN into Add Item by Identifier.) For AR6 WG1 we added full metadata for each individual chapter and its respective authors (234 in all), and that's what we're planning to do here.
  • Wow, that's amazing! I obviously misunderstood --- I thought the point was to get the basic metadata.

    This may be a side topic, but do you often add full metadata to certain projects? And what's the best way to get full metadata usually? (I tend to either add the doi, isbn, etc. directly or use the connector or the bookmarklet to send stuff over to my web library)

    If this helps, here are the authors of the full report, the technical summary and the 8 first chapters (I followed the format of the existing IPCC translator)

    Hoping there is no mistake
  • This may be a side topic, but do you often add full metadata to certain projects?
    No, this is an exception given the importance of the IPCC reports (combined with the poor quality of their available metadata).
    See https://www.zotero.org/support/dev/exposing_metadata for how to make metadata available in ways that Zotero can read for any project.
  • @poettli: Thanks so much for putting those together! Just pushed an update. Your Zotero Connector should auto-update within 24 hours, or you can update manually by clicking Update Translators in the Advanced pane of the Zotero Connector preferences.
  • Maybe a stupid question, but how do I access the IPCC metadata? When I use Zotero connector to add the IPCC AR6 chapter to my library, no metadata is added. Is there a unique identifier for these reports? Using the "Add Items by Identifier" button and copying in the DOI doesn't seem to work either, it says Zotero can't find it. Please help!
  • I meant how to get the chapter metadata into Zotero without manually typing out the authors' names and editors' names etc.?
  • By saving to Zotero from that link
  • When you hover your mouse over the connector of your web browser, you should see "Save to Zotero (IPCC)". Clicking on the connector gives you access to the list of chapters. You can select which one you want to save
  • AMAZING! Thanks so much.
  • It works great!Thank you so much for this! It has always been a cumborsome process to manually input all the metadata of the IPCC reports and this really helps. I've noticed that 6th AR WR1 report is also supported, which is great.
    It would be awesome to be able to get the metadata via translator for other important reports too, for example:
    IPCC 6th AR - The Working Group III, Mitigation of Climate Change; https://www.ipcc.ch/report/ar6/wg3/
    Special report Climate Change and Land; https://www.ipcc.ch/srccl/
    Special report Global Warming of 1.5 ºC;
  • Hi I echo psj8710. I need the full bibliography of AR6 WGIII like you've done for WG2. Those were so simple. Please do try and create and easy zotero connector option for WGIII reports in a folder format.
