When you install Zotero, it also adds a Zotero tab to your Word application. See our Download and Install instructions.
The plugin allows you to:
1. Click Add/Edit Citation
2. Click the Multiple Sources button
3. Highlight one of your sources
4. Click the right pointing green arrow to add the source to the box
5. Add page number(s) if necessary
6. Continue adding sources this way until you get to the last source
7. Some styles (Chicago Notes & Bibliography, for example) require the word "and" just before the last source. When adding your last source only, type in "and" in the Prefix field
8. Click OK
Oftentimes for webpages, the organization is used as the author, and the citation starts with the title. You can omit the author in the popup window in Word when you cite.
With author-date styles, authors are often moved into the text and omitted from the following parentheses-enclosed citation, e.g.: ”…according to Smith (1776) the division of labor is crucial …“
The organization name will appear in the bibliography though, as it should.
To cite the page, use the Page field. Other locators are in the drop down menu.
If the locator is not listed, e.g., Table, use the Suffix field.
You can insert a Zotero note directly into Word.
Go to the Zotero tab in Word > Click the Add Note button
1. Select the Zotero tab
2. Click Add/Edit Citation
3. Select your style > most likely you are using: Chicago 17th edition (full note)
4. Select Endnotes
5. References tab
To get a true word count of your paper (without including the words in the footnotes) you need to change the default setting in Word.
