    Zotero (https://www.zotero.org/) is a reference management system.  There is a free version that is ideal for students, and it is imperitive that you develop skills in reference Management, which will be considered as part of your class report. You should do the following

    1. Create an account at Zotero.org, this will allow you to set up a group folder where you can share citations with collaborators.
    2. Install Zotero on your computer (https://www.zotero.org/support/installation).
    3. Install the Zotero connector app on your browser (https://www.zotero.org/download/connectors)

    Video |\(\PageIndex{1}\): Good basic YouTube on Zotero uploaded by Top Tip Bio (https://youtu.be/JG7Uq_JFDzE).

     

    One of the things you need to note is that Zotero does not upload copies of non-open access papers.  If you are collaborating with someone you can place a copy in a Google Drive folder that is not open to the public, and then share it with your collolaborator.  Then you can place a link in the "notes" section of the Zotero file associated with the paper, and you can your collaborator can discuss the paper and its relevance to your article/report.

    The following video shows how to do this.
