More Citation Styles Offered in Zotero

October 17, 2008

You can find more citation styles in Zotero Style Repository. Only few of these additional styles can work with the current stable version (1.0.7), while many would need the Zotero 1.5 Sync Preview or later (still in beta).

I’m glad to find that the styles of American Physical Society (APS) and American Institute of Physics (AIP) are ones of the few. In the begin I got some problem when trying out APS style, but with the help from people in Zotero forum it’s working fine now. 🙂

Zotero includes the style of Nature by default and already supports Science as optional installation in August 2008. Other physics-related journals supported in Zotero 1.5 Sync Preview include:

  • Applied Physics Letters
  • Journal of Applied Physics
  • Low Temperature Physics
  • Nature Physics and Nature Nanotechnology etc
  • Physical Review A-E and Physical Review Letters

Zotero seems to look better and better. However, it still cannot allow users to change the format of BibTeX key when exporting the items into BibTeX format. To work around this, just export the selected items into a BibTeX file, and use JabRef or the like to batch change their BibTeX keys into your preferred format.

There are still some problems to import JabRef database (*.bib) into Zotero, or vice versa (mainly the lost of some information during the conversion). Both have their own advantages, so one has to think about which tool would work better for him/her. Before I used JabRef more. Now I’d use both for a while and see how it goes. 😉
