Import Tutorials

Import from Pubmed (German)

If publications are recorded in PubMed, the bibliographic data available there can be imported into ZORA using the PubMed ID.

Import with DOI via CrossRef (German)

For all publications that have a DOI (Digital Object Identifier), the existing bibliographic data can be imported to a large extent.

Import from Citavi (German)

The literature management software Citavi is available to all UZH members. The software and installation instructions can be obtained from the Citavi IT Services website.

Import BibTeX (German)

Many literature databases and publishing websites offer the possibility to export bibliographic data in BibTeX format.

There are different approaches: In some cases, the file is displayed in the browser in BibTeX format so that it can be copied and pasted into the ZORA import field (import of a single publication). Sometimes a text file in BibTeX format is output, which can be saved and imported into ZORA (import of several publications possible).

Import of several publications via a saved text file using the example Web of Science. Please note that you are in the 'Web of Science' database and not under 'All databases'.
