Scrivener, EndNote and Word – Citing References

Integrating reference managers with Scrivener is very simple, so that citations can be added quickly and easily without disrupting the writing process. However, whilst some formatting options are available for the final document, the main purpose is content generation. Rather than being a standalone program, for a polished-looking document it is often easiest to format it elsewhere.

Below is a quick guide to inserting references into a Scrivener document, and exporting the text for formatting in Word.

Integrating Zotero and Scrivener for citation management

I love Scrivener. Love love love it. But I had been unable to figure out how to integrate it with my bibliography management in Zotero, even after multiple Internet searches. This was a problem, as I also love using Zotero, and want to keep supporting the project and its developers. But it was getting increasingly unwieldy to hardcode citation references into Scrivener text by dragging-and-dropping from Zotero — which was the usual solution suggested. When you start getting into 50 page documents that need to be outputted with different citation styles for different publication venues, manually copying and pasting the citations with each new submission is…frustrating.

Zotero has a plug-in that works with Word to obviate the need for manual copying and pasting, apparently. In that model, you basically add code snippets to your text that list all the citation variables. Then, you can export your doc and transform the snippets into whatever citation format you like. A nice separation of content and presentation layer.

So I figured that maybe there was some obvious technical fix I had missed about replicating that replaceability in Scrivener. Hallelujah, there was. What was confusing me is that there no official Zotero plug-in for Scrivener to manage the conversion between one citation formatting style and other, à la the Word plugin.

However, it turns out that Zotero has a function called RTF Scan essentially does the same thing.

Here’s how it works.
