Adding New Citation Styles

Adding New Citation Styles

Zotero has over 8,000 different citation styles preformatted that can be added to your quick list of citation styles. In addition to standard styles like APA, Chicago, Harvard and CSE, the Zotero style repository has journal-specific styles like PloS Biology, Journal of Egyptian History, and Frontiers in Laboratory Medicine too (and many more).

Installing New Styles:

1.) To install new styles, go to your Zotero >> Preferences.
