I'm trying to write a book in org-mode. The book will contain numerous
citations to journal articles (in addition to books or URLs), which are all
stored in my Zotero library. I've successfully installed the Zotero addons
zotxt & Better Bibtex for Zotero, as well as the Emacs package zotxt
(zotxt-emacs). I can create the basic citation using the
"@AUTHOR_FIRSTTITLEWORD_YEAR" style (set org-zotxt-link-description-style
variable to :betterbibtexkey and then use C-c " i to insert references).
My book being targetted to the general public, I want to use end-notes
instead of the usual citation format (LastName, Year). Something like:
Experts studied ([[zotero://select/items/1_VDVFUIBV]],
[[zotero://select/items/1_TXDISZDFR]]) that animals behave very
And then all the references will go to the References chapter.
Judging from reading the org-zotxt.el source code in the zotxt-emacs
package (with my non-existant Emacs Lisp knowledge) I conclude that this is
not supported. But I can certainly whip up some script to preprocess the
Org document to change the betterbibtexkey description style to the numbers
There are also a few other things I want/need but don't know yet how to
accomplish. Like generating the References chapter (will probably whip up
some script again), making item searching less painful, doing something
useful when a zotero Org link is opened (org-open-at-point), or customizing
the ODT export (hopefully creating Zotero reference instead of just
unlinked text or broken links).
Anyone already using Zotero and org-mode, and in the same situation? I'm
not tied to zotxt; still open to using org-ref or other alternatives; but I
want to keep both org-mode and Zotero.
