Importing References into Covidence

Exporting references from Zotero

To export your citations from Zotero, you need to:

  1. Open Zotero
  2. Click on Gear icon then Export, like so:
    Selecting Gear Icon then Export Library in Zotero to export your citations
  3. Now select the RIS format. This format is the most compatible with all the other citation managers, so it's best to use this format. Select OK and select where you want to save the file. The Desktop is often the best place to save this file, so that you do not forget where you saved it. Like so:
    Saving your Mendeley library in the RIS format

If you have built a collection of notes to accompany the citations in your Zotero library, then you will want to export the Notes as well.

Now your Zotero library is ready to be imported into another citation manager.
