Zotero-Export for Literature

on Apr 03, 2014

For literature data we implemented a Bibtex functionality and a Zotero export. Zotero Export is already available for all literature records, but only authors and year are written to appropriate fields. All other information end up in the title field (including the title). For those data sets that already contain Bibtex information, the full quote is returned. In the near future we will supply Bibtex information for all references. You can access the Zotero-Import at individial literature records as well as at the sample records.
