Near the end of March, the Faculty of Communication and Documentation, the department that EC3 is based out of, celebrated San Benito for the Patron’s Day (el Día del Patrón). As part of this celebration, Daniel Torres-Salinas and Wenceslao Arroyo-Machado put on a special course through YoSigoPublicando that highlights several advanced features of the software Zotero. 

Zotero is a free software that aids researchers in organizing and citing their resources. YSP has actually done three past courses on this software: Bibliographic reference management with Zotero, Using Zotero in your academic works, and Zotero vs Mendeley Comparison. This course expanded upon the previous introductory courses by highlighting more advanced techniques that the software provides. Specifically, this course covered:

  • RSSS Channels
  • Metadata and PDF
  • Saving searches
  • Scanning RTF
  • Reference extractor
  • Importing Notes and Zotfile
  • Color Tags
  • Bibliography Z Web and APIS
  • Advanced Plug ins
  • CSL Citation Styles

This course is a great option for those looking to expand their Zotero skills, and these shortcuts will certainly help to improve the research experience! The recording is available here, and future YSP courses are available here.
