  • There are at least two things that might be called an "interview". One, the interview to which you seem to refer, is a conversation that you, yourself, have with someone. Another is a published (or unpublished) interview conducted by someone else wi…
  • @beatrizoli_ Please take a few minutes and view everything under Using Zotero at: https://www.zotero.org/support/ Then do some experimentation on your own. Even the advanced capabilities of Zotero are rather easy to learn. As you encounter diffic…
  • @beatrizoli_ @bwiernik is offering you valuable advice and assistance. What you desire, if I understand you correctly, is beyond the capabilities of current Zotero capacity but no single software package can do all of what you want to accomplish. Z…
  • RetractionWatch includes both retracted articles and articles with corrections. Some of the "corrected" articles have errors such as author names in the wrong order or misspelled -- things that should be fixed in any manuscript if only for bibliomet…
  • You will need to provide more information about what isn't working. Simply providing a problem ID will not get you the help you need. See: https://www.zotero.org/support/reporting_problems Read beyond Step 1

  • It is likely that you deleted the collection without deleting the records it contained. Unintentionally deleting the collection organization is certainly very inconvenient but you need to actively accept multiple warnings to delete the contents of a…
  • Feel free to ignore this somewhat off topic comment until @adamsmith returns to announce his fix: My reaction / questions arose from my perspective as curator of a literature database, how the volume/issue designations should be recorded in the onl…
  • I responded to you in detail shortly after your first post concerning this question. Somehow, my message didn't stick. Sorry about that and the delay it caused. PLease clarify what Zotero (CSL) style are you using? Are you asking about the Past and…
  • Someone else will need to follow up with more details but I may be able to offer some assistance in the interim. First, I presume that you are going to the Zotero homepage ( https://www.zotero.org/ ) and clicking the big red DOWNLOAD button. That…
  • Before there is any decision about a formal connection to PubPeer I recommend that Zotero policy-makers spend half an hour on the website. Read the PubPeer FAQ especially the section on anonymous posting of comments (allowed). Then read a few recent…
  • Since this was a beta I tried to break it by damaging a reference in LO and transferring to Word. With the exception of the broken cite (ignored in the Word transfer); this worked "a treat" (with thanks to Frank Bennett for a new figure of speech).
  • Isn’t Zotero in a Mac documents folder asking for trouble? This suggests that the Zotero database might also be in the documents folder. Have changes made it now safe to have the database in iCloud? The documents folder seems to regularly sync with …
  • @dstillman made a suggestion and asked you questions in the post/thread you started a week ago. Please respond to him. Provide the Debug ID number here or in the other thread. Provide the requested screen shot. No one can help if we cannot unders…
  • Please provide examples of URLs of articles that you cannot save. You must respond to questions before you can receive meaningful help. Please know that your use of all upper case characters is considered _very_ rude by several of the most helpful…
  • Toxnet is a collection of 15+ different databases. Each database has a different way to format the information presented in each record. With the exception of Toxline, none of the other databases provide records that contain metadata. Some of the …
  • @adamsmith is correct and this will need to be corrected by a participating library. However, it is my experience, while working through my university, that it can require extraordinary effort and evidence for the OCLC to make changes to WorldCat. T…
  • This is all over the internet news and technology sites. Not Zotero specifically but all plug-ins. Mozilla said, according to the reports, that the problem is in part caused by an unexpected key certificate expiration. From TechCrunch ...the sudde…
  • Lets be sure that we are discussing the same article. Here is a non-proxy link: https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0014488615000345 That seems to be an open access article. I can get the PDF file and metadata from the pdf either w…
  • From a recent experience I think this _might_ be related to the Smile program that awards a (tiny) percentage of a purchase to a not-for profit of the customer’s choice. I am a Smile participant. Recently I visited Amazon to capture metadata on a bo…
  • off topic Yes, Sebastian, I’m sure that you and Brenton (both multilingual) know the Latin origins and I did really like what you did there. I have friends whose first language is Dutch, French, or Persian and we jokingly banter about the merits of…
  • The abbreviation et al. is not “English”. “Et al.” is an abbreviation of the Latin phrase et alia, which means “and others.” Granted, I don’t know how common it is to use Latin phrase abbreviations with scholarly writing in languages other than Engl…
  • The embedded metadata in the webpage header doesn't provide pagination in a form that is useful to Zotero. For the journal article the beginning and ending pages are omitted but the other metadata items are there. The book section header metadata ta…
  • PaperShip and Zotero are separate projects. Zotero has no influence or affiliation with PaperShip. PaperShip was once a very useful utility for use with Zotero. That time has past.
  • You can always copy the ISBN from the Amazon page and enter it into the Zotero magic-wand field.
  • I think that you will need to enter that article by hand into your Zotero database. EMResident is not indexed in PubMed. The article on the EMResident does not provide any metadata other than the article title. https://www.emra.org/emresident/arti…
  • Someone will soon reply with very detailed answers if you ask specific questions. In the meantime, you can gather a wealth of information by searching the Zotero documentation (link above) and this forum. Use the search term: Scrivener. A large amou…
  • As a recovering genealogist I know the usefulness of this resource. However, what items do you hope to import into Zotero? The information and documents available on the site are essential sources. But, unless I am missing something, the metadata th…
  • When you export a database in EndNote XML (or RIS) there is no relevant style. You are using a selected to export your database records _not_ some bibliographic style.
  • @adamsmith There is something else involved. I've experienced this ("The webpage at..." error message followed by 2 or 3 or more rapid downloads of the metadata and Zotero record creations) with Cambridge University Press and APA PsycNet (and maybe…
  • I think you must describe your request in greater detail. Thumbnails of what. Where do you want them to appear? Under what circumstances do you want thumbnails to appear?
