To add in-text citations and bibliographies to your work download the Word toolbar when setting up your Zotero account. Once you have done this you will see Zotero represented in your Word toolbar.
To add an in-text citation place your cursor where you want it in the Word document and click on Add/Edit Citation and then search your Library for the citation you need. If you have to add a page number be sure to click on the citation within the Zotero search.
To add a bibliography (that will pull from every in-text citation that you utilized Zotero to create) click on the Add/Edit Bibliography
Click "Document Preferences" to change the document's citation style. This will adjust the citations as well as the bibliography.
Click the Refresh button in case any changes don't happen automatically and click the Unlink Citations option if you are completely done with your paper and need a copy that does not include the Zotero coding (it is always a good idea to save a copy with the coding though).
Zotero works with Google Docs! You must have the Zotero Connector installed in Chrome, Firefox or Safari, there is no separate download specifically for Google Docs.
Instead of a toolbar you will look for the Zotero menu in your Google Docs editor and be able to select all relevant options (for more information on options see the Word Plugin box on this page).
If you want to create a bibliography, without having a document that has in-text citations, you can do so directly from Zotero Desktop.
Zotero comes with the most common bibliographic styles, but many more are available to download.
To install a style:
The new style will appear in Zotero's style lists.
