The Corpus Callosum

Bibliography Tool: Zotero

This is good.   href="http://www.getfirefox.net/">Firefox now has
an extension that makes it simple to store all your bibliographic
information from online research.
 

i-a0990ff888f72c3d72197ec534e7da9f-zotero_screenshot.jpg

It is at release candidate 3 stage now, well-developed and
fully functional.  It is called href="http://www.zotero.org/" rel="tag">Zotero.
 It is bundled with the “ href="http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/add-ons/campus/">Campus
Edition” (the best thing since ramen noodles) of Firefox, but
it can be installed easily into any version on Linux, OS X, or even
Windows machines.

From an article at href="http://www.linuxinsider.com/story/g7FpNWptSHJJ99/Mozilla-Makes-Bid-for-Campus-Clicks.xhtml">Linux
Insider
:

For purposes of bona fide research and
turning incompletes into passing grades, Zotero is a big something.
Zotero, which resides within the browser, can store the author, title
and publication fields, and export the information as formatted
references.

Zotero is a production of the Center for History and New Media at
George Mason University. Some of its funding has come from the United
States Institute of Museum and Library Services and the Andrew W.
Mellon Foundation.


It is a polished piece of work, another instance of quality programming
in the free — libre — open-source software arena.  I tried
it with a nearly random search at Medline and it worked well.
 You can associate tags and notes with each reference, then
export the entire thing.   This is going to save a lot of
people a lot of time.

    Since I never liked EndNote I imediately installed Zotero. Unfortunately, like I other users I had problems to download references directly from PubMed/Medline. This issue can be solved when you do your PubMed/Medline search on BioMed Central (http://www.biomedcentral.com/) instead. You can export your results into zotero by just clicking “send to”. You can choose different export formats. I’ve used “Endnote + abstracts” and it worked fine.
    Unfortunately, for snapshoting pdfs of these articles you have to create additional entries andd copy their URL into the URL field of the entry that contains the references. In addition, right clicking and and snapshoting links to pdfs doesn’t work for all journals. In these cases one has to store the pdf locally first and open the pdf in firefox. One the has to make a snapshot and copy the URL to the entry with the reference.
    Currently, I can´t search inside the pdfs with Zotero but I hope that this will work with the next update.

  3. Thanks. Good very site
