Some on this list may be interested in checking out the open source Zotero, http://www.zotero.org/, when it makes its public beta debut later this month. I read about it here: http://www.dancohen.org/blog/posts/introducing_zotero. He says it allows you to do “citation management, note taking, and advanced scholarly research right within the Firefox browser.” Don’t know if his claim that it’s better than Endnote is true, but given the recent discussion of IdeaMason, etc., I thought I’d pass it on.

Mark,

I assume this is the program mentioned in the Open Office bibliographic mailing list, wher it said something along the lines that this was the outcome of one of the stages in developing the Open Office bibliographic project, which was going to be released first as a FireFox extension.

So it will be really interesting to see how it develops once it makes it into Open Office.

Mark and Graham, I look forward to trying Zotero.

Already the best web clip product on the market as far as I am concerned is Scrapbook for Firefox.

If Zotero does likewise it could give some other fairly pricey products a shake up.

I hope Zotero works well. I have found issues with every biblio product I have tried. Sooner or later someone will get it right.

Just to clarify (I am one of the OOo bib project co-leads):

The relationship between Zotero and OOoBib is not so direct. I developed some tools and specifications (for citation styling configuration—called CSL—and data exchange*) that I intend to also include in OOo.

The Zotero guys have been helping me with some of this, and are using the same XML languages then. But we were not directly involved in the development. They are fully separate projects that are simply cooperating.
