Important Note

Remember: although Zotero will save you hours of work, it is a computer program and doesn't always know when and if it's making a mistake. It's always a good idea to check over your citations and make sure that they conform properly to the citation style that you're using. To check them over, go to, select your citation style, and just scan over your citations. Watch out in particular for Zotero not grabbing the permalink from the database that you took an article from.
