is a free, open-source and easy-to-use program. It helps collect, organise, cite and share your research sources. Zotero also allows you to search for other research colleagues in your discipline.

Functions that make Zotero comfortable to use:

  • it is an add-on for the Firefox browser
  • it automatically recognises potentially relevant content while you are browsing the internet or a scientific database. With a single click you can add the reference to a relevant result to your personal Zotero library
  • since it is a browser add-on, you will not have to change between your browser and your desktop application to manage your references
