  • I have used both extensively. Including the new version of EndNote truns a bit better and has a more modern UI. I think the only reason to use EndNote is if you want to be able to heavily customize reference types. If you are fine with the Zotero p…
  • @bwiernik That is welcome news about treaty being added to Zotero. Will that be in 5.1 (which is hopefully not that far away), or is it further out? Related to this, is there a way to exclude specific reference types from the bibliography? Accordin…
  • Zotero is not that great for international law. You can work around some of the shortcomings. See here, for example: https://libguides.graduateinstitute.ch/zotero/law (note that they are using the European Journal of International Law style in this …
  • I am not super familiar with US legal citation, and certainly not Ohio legal citation (I work on non-US jurisdictions and international law), so take the following with a grain of salt, but generally, the format is something like (following Bluebook…
  • I have done this multiple times without issues. Here is how I do it: 1. In Bookends, Export References (Hits) as Endnote XML (make sure to click the button to include attachments). Save it to Desktop or similar. This will generate an XML and copies…
  • @Abohaal I have not used Juris-M much, but I think it supports most European jurisdictions pretty well. I do mostly cite international law (treaties and cases) and UN/AU/ECOWAS documents of various sorts. One other thing: since Mendeley and Zotero …
  • @Abohaal Zotfile is helpful if you want to move PDFs between Zotero and an external folder (e.g. Dropbox) for purposes of reading on an iPad. I haven't done this in a while but last I did it worked quite well. Re: the legal stuff, I'd recommend you…
  • Zotero today is faster than Mendeley and, I think, have more features. In addition, if you are doing a lot of legal citations, you might want to look at Juris-M which is a fork of Zotero that includes additional features for legal writing. Neither…
  • I am not 100% sure what you mean by track, but Zotfile can extract PDF highlights (and I presume notes too, though not sure) and put them in Zotero as notes with a link to the original.
  • It is not quite what you are asking for, and obviously the relevance of this depends on precisely what you want to do, but I have used Airtable as database replacement when working with students (it is a web app with good collaboration futures). If…
  • @bwiernik Thanks, that makes sense. I do fairly often create web page references from scratch (for various boring non-important reasons), so I will just create as Journal Article or whatever and manually switch them.
  • It works fine for me switching between MacOS and Windows. I have all my Zotero PDFs in a OneDrive folder. In Zotero (not Zotfile) preferences go to Advanced > Files and Folders. Make sure that Linked Attachment Base Directory is the same folder…
