  1. Installing the Zotero Word Processor Plugins The word processor plugins are bundled with Zotero and should be installed automatically for each supported word processor on your computer when you first start Zotero. You can reinstall the plugins later from the Cite → Word Processor Plugins pane of the Zotero preferences.
  2. Apr 27, 2013 Zotero is a solution designed to assist on usage of citations and bibliographic information inside popular word processors. Below I describe the specific use case of using Zotero within OpenOffice/LibreOffice, integrated with Firefox. Zotero solution consists of three things.
  3. Windows 7 (64), Zotero Standalone, Firefox 42.0, JRE 32-bit v8 update 65, LibreOffice (5.03, uninstalled, installed 4.4).
  4. Step 1 – Install LibreOffice. If you don’t already have it, you’ll need to install LibreOffice (an opensource alternative to MS Office). Zotero also used to support OpenOffice, but this is no longer compatible. You don’t actually need to use LibreOffice for anything other than linking Scrivener to Zotero.

In the toolbar of the Zotero LibreOffice plugin, click the Set Document Preferences button and choose a citation style. Click OK and Zotero will format all references in your document. If you want a bibliography, move the cursor to the desired location and click Insert Bibliography.
