Zotero does not extract complete metadata for the following


I am on the editorial collective of:

And we have learned that Zotero does not extract the correct and enough metadata to generate accurate citations.

For example, for author is extracts the person who published/posted in Wordpress rather than the actual author. Is is suggested if we can make Zotero think the content is a journal rather than webpage, folks would have greater success generating citations.

Are there any steps we can take to improver citation generation?

  • https://www.zotero.org/support/dev/exposing_metadata should help.
  • It is a wordpress plugin that we have used the following COinS plugin with:

    How do we get better results?

    Or will we need to develop a translator?

  • I'm not seeing COinS anywhere -- do you have a page where I should be seeing this?
  • I just turned the plugin on. Please let me know if you see any difference. Thanks.

    As you can see, the data Zotero imports is exactly what's in the COinS. I don't know how customizable the scholarpress COinS add-on is, but if you can't get it to use the correct authors (and define this as article type), this may not be a good choice.

    Wouldn't it make sense to try to embed metatags anyway, since that gives you better google scholar indexing?
  • @sklein2 I also get incomplete input from JITP. Please update us on your progress.
  • We are not paying much attention to this, but I think we are forking:
