The Zotero plugin enables Writer to interact with Zotero to manage references in documents.
Zotero is a free, easy-to-use Firefox extension to help you collect, manage, and cite your research sources. It provides five basic functions:
- Add Citation
- Edit Citation
- Zotero Insert Bibliography
- Refresh - updates your references to any changes in your Zotero collection.
- Document Preferences - allowing you to change your bibliographic style on the fly
The Zotero-OpenOffice plugin was Modified by Ian Laurenson under contract to the University of Southern Queensland for OOo Writer.
- There is an open request for improved hyperlinkage behaviours, including automated linkage from citations to bibliography entries, and between bibliography entries and the referenced resources (where a suitable URI is available in the zotero record for the entry).
- For better usability the Zotero extension could better integrate itself into the OpenOffice menu system. Please see: http://qa.openoffice.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=106396
