Adding items manually

As with other referencing software, individual items can be added to the database using a manual template.

In Zotero:

  • Choose a format from the long drop-down list from the New item arrow
  • Options include: Book, book section, journal article, newspaper article and many others
  • Complete the details required, then click and drag the item to your required folder (collection)
