Formatting References in Research Articles using Zotero

Workshop Details
1:00 PM – 3:00 PM
Wednesday; March 18, 2015
Room 1028 (Male Side), E1 (CIT) Building

Target Audience
This workshop is for graduate students and research assistants (as well as any faculty members who are typing their references manually!). Those who are using Endnote should also consider Zotero as superior alternative.

Workshop Leader
Dr. M. Jawad Hashim
Department of Family Medicine, College of Medicine and Health Sciences

Workshop Description
Zotero is a free software for researchers, similar to Endnote, that allows one-click importing of references from websites such as Google Scholar. Zotero can then insert citations to references into a Microsoft Word document in specific journal styles such as APA, Harvard, MLA and others. Zotero is a must for researchers as it helps organize background reading including storing PDF's, even before starting a research study.

Learning objectives:
1. Import references from websites into Zotero
2. Insert citations into a Microsoft Word document

Resources
Recommended: bring your Windows or Mac laptop with Firefox (www.mozilla.org) and Zotero (www.zotero.org) installed before the workshop.

RSVP by email to cgs@uaeu.ac.ae with the subject "Formatting References in Research Articles using Zotero" and include your name and College of affiliation by March 15. Seats are limited.
