Zotero: Installing Zotero

Zotero is one of the alternatives to EndNote. It is a Firefox addon that collects, manages, and cites research sources. It's free and easy to use.

What is Zotero for Firefox?

Zotero for Firefox runs as a plugin for the Firefox web browser, not as a separate program.

The same version of Zotero for Firefox works on any computer that runs Firefox; there are no separate Windows and Mac versions.

Choose Zotero for Firefox if:

  • You use the Firefox browser
  • You prefer to have Zotero as a pane inside your browser instead of a separate window

Step 1. Install the Zotero for Firefox plugin
