The broader conversation > about the appropriate syntax is a bit beyond me, Hi, Matt, As the org-zotero-export.el shows, getting Zotero references from Org into ODT is pretty simple. That framework could be implemented whatever syntax we end up with to take care of the details. I'm interested in feedback on the syntax, though -- that is, on the way I'm using the description part of the link to convey various bits of information to Zotero. Is it worth pursuing, or would people prefer other ways of doing it? If worth pursuing, could it be improved? > (1) How do you get the Zotero cite keys right now, and what method do > you think would ultimately be the best to try for? The best to try for: Something with as brilliant an interface as RefTex... Since this thread is on citation syntax, I think I'll gather my thoughts about how to get there (zotero-plain? Zotero Server API? sqlite? word processor plugin emulation?), and about your other questions, and start another Zotero-related thread in a day or two. Right now: I'm still depending on Quick Copy with a custom Zotero translator. That is, I tab from Emacs to Firefox, look up a reference in the Zotero pane, and Quick Copy (C-S-c) to a formatted link to the clipboard. Tab back to Emacs, yank the link, manually tweak the description as necessary. RefTex it ain't, and it's cumbersome for multiple citations, but it works. Yours, Christian
