Zotero sync allows you to connect your account to the Zotero cloud so that you can have access to the citations, notes, and files you collect across multiple devices. It also serves as a form of backup, though we do not recommend relying solely on the Zotero cloud to backup your data. Syncronizing also allows you to collaborate with shared group folders.
To set up syncing:
- Open Zotero
- Open preferences
- Under sync put your Zotero account information in. If you do not have an account we recommend setting one up and configuring syncing before collecting data.
- After setting up syncing any files you have collected on other computers will be downloaded to the computer you are currently using.
