Step 1: Download the Zotero software + the Zotero connector

https://www.zotero.org/download/

Step 2: Create a Zotero account and log into your account

So your reference library is saved to the Zotero cloud.
Create your account here: https://www.zotero.org/user/register
Then log in to your account in Zotero: 

  • Open Zotero
  • Go to "Edit"
  • Choose "Preferences" 
  • Click on the "Sync" tab
  • Fill in your username and password 
  • Click "Set up syncing" - Done!

Step 3: Download the SLU Harvard style sheet

  • Open Zotero
  • Go to "Edit"
  • Choose "Preferences" 
  • Click on the "Cite" tab
  • Go to the "Styles" tab
  • Click on "Get additional styles..."
  • Search for  "Acta Universitatis agriculturae Sueciae" 
  • Press the link for "Acta Universitatis..." - Done! 
When you use Zotero in a new Word document you will be promted to choose a style - choose the SLU style sheet "Acta Universitatis agriculturae Sueciae" to follow our recommendation for Harvard references.

Step 4: Make sure you have the Zotero plug-in in Word

If you cannot see the Zotero plug-in in Word: 
  • Open Zotero
  • Go to "Edit"
  • Choose "Preferences" 
  • Click on the "Cite" tab
  • Go to the "Word processors" tab 
  • Click on "Install Microsoft Word Add-in"
  • Shut down Zotero and Word. 
  • Open Zotero and Word again - the Word plug-in should now be visable! Sometimes you also have to click on "enable macros" when you open the word document, in order to see the plug-in.

Step 5: Test to use Zotero!
