Zotero is free, easy to use software that helps you save, manage, and cite research sources.

Downloading Additional Citation Styles

The Zotero client comes with several popular citation styles pre-installed, such as APA, Chicago, and MLA. Sometimes, however, you may need to use a style that does not come pre-installed. For example, many academic journals require the use of highly specialized styles.

To install additional styles:

  • Go to the Zotero Preferences menu (Zotero > Preferences on Mac, Edit > Preferences on PC).
  • Click on the Cite menu. Here, you'll see a list of all of the styles already installed.
  • Below the list of pre-installed styles, click the link for Get additional styles...
  • Search for your desired style in the provided search field.
  • Select the style you want to install. Many styles have different versions. Make sure to select the one that matches your desired citations.

Modified Bluebook Style

The version of Bluebook style below is modified to correct an issue with how Zotero handles page numbers in citations. This version is current as of October 2017, but users should refer to the CSL Repository above for the "official" Bluebook CSL file.
