  • @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?
  • MeSH terms are not final / complete until several weeks after a record is added to Medline. Some medical publishers (JAMA for example) are allowed to provide preliminary MeSH terms directly to the database but these may change when the indexing proc…
  • @aliakhavan89 Although this has been resolved in many other applications many years ago... I'd love to know your examples of software that does this automatically. Especially any software that can handle J. G. March, JG March, J March, Janice Gis…
  • I apologize for not being more clear. I was writing about ZotFile not caring about highlight color. If someone doesn't ninja me, I'll try to comment soon on several pdf annotation programs that work with Zotfile.
  • The highlight color is irrelevant.
  • The A and B problem: Are you working with the Zotero Groups function? If so there could be a duplicate record in a group _and_ in your main library. Citing from your library and a group library will trigger the A,B disambiguation. This can also happ…
  • What you are requesting would be better than splendid but it is profoundly complex to implement -- especially with multilingual synonyms, hierarchical taxonomies, etc. For further information and enlightenment Google these concepts Bibliographic d…
  • Both NLM and Med Sci Sport Exerc use a _numbered_ style. Items in the bibliography appear in the order cited. If you want a style that alphabetizes the bibliography by author name you will need to use a different style. You will need to better de…
  • If the APA style version isn't listed on the course syllabus you should tactfully try to find out the professor's preferred version. There is at least one professor at my university who demands that students use an earlier version and takes points o…
  • What citation style are you using? Is the comment statement in a note or did you enter it in the Extra field?
  • Please verify that every time the name J. J. Arnett , J. Arnett, Jeff Arnett (or that of any other author) appears in your Zotero database that her/his name is entered exactly the same for each publication. Ideally you should edit the name so that…
  • @CainPY asked is there a limit... In 2008 I used Zotero to write my doctoral thesis. It contains more than 400 different cited items. At the time Zotero was quite cooperative even though I was using Vancouver style, cited several of the sources mul…
