How To Create A Bibliography Using Zotero In Word

Insert Citations into a MS Word Document

Open your Zotero library while using Zotero with Word.

The first time you use the Insert Citation button in the Zotero Toolbar, you will be prompted to choose your referencing style. Choose the appropriate style. 

         

To add a citation to your Word document, click the Insert Citation icon. This will bring up a search box. There are two ways to insert your citations:

  • Enter a keyword, title or author name in the search box. Zotero will search your library for the appropriate reference. Simply click on the reference you want then press enter. Zotero will insert it into your document. 

         

  • You can also click Z to select Classic View, this will bring you to the Zotero library, select a reference from your Zotero library and click OK to insert this citation. 

         

Edit citations

  • Click an in-text citation you want to edit, then click Edit citation icon from the Add-on tool bar.
  • In the red search box (see the image below), click once on the citation (Wakeham et al., 2012), this will open the edit box.
  • Add page numbers in the Page field, or Suppress Author, as required. and press the Enter key.

         

To create an annotated bibliography in APA style:

  • Select American Psychological Association 6th edition (annotated bibliography with abstract) as your citation style. If you don't see this style in your list click "get additional styles."
  • Enter your annotation in the abstract field (you'll need to delete any abstract that was automatically imported).
  • Use the techniques listed above in the "create standard bibliographies" section to create a file with the annotated bibliography.

To create an annotated bibliography in Chicago style:

  • Select Chicago Manual of Style 16th edition (note, annotated bibliography) as your citation style. If you don't see this style in your list click "get additional styles."
  • Enter your annotation in the Extra field (you'll need to delete anything that was automatically imported).
  • Use the techniques listed above in the "create standard bibliographies" section to create a file with the annotated bibliography.

To create annotated bibliographies in other styles:

  1. Type your annotation into the "Extra" field in Zotero (this field is almost at the bottom of the record) [Note: As to how much text can be stored in the Extra field, there is no limit on the client side. For syncing, text is limited to 64KB.]
  2. Download and install the style you want from the resource at Eastern Michigan University (listed below)
  3. Follow the techniques listed above in the "create standard bibliographies" section making sure you select the correct style.
  4. The following styles are available: APA, MLA, Chicago Author-Date, American Sociological Association, American Anthropological Association, American Medical Association, and Journal of Cell Biology.
