Zotero application Zotero workshop
Using Zotero will save you hours of typing out references!
This page describes an idea for a participatory workshop, to get started with Zotero. The workshop mainly focusses on why you want to use Zotero, rather than the technical details of Zotero. However, in preparation, participants do some self-guided exercises to develop basic familiarity with Zotero. At the workshop, we'll discuss
  • Collecting references for an academic publication in any discipline.
  • Collecting text from blogs for social science research.
  • Setting up a shared group on Zotero, for sharing references and files.
  • Using Zotero for research synthesis and systematic literature review.

We'll relate these ideas to the concrete research interests of the participants. For those participants in academic positions, we'll also discuss how to use Zotero in undergraduate and graduate teaching and research.
