How to import an entire Mendeley, Endnote, or Zotero library

You can import an entire bibliographic database from Mendeley, Endnote, or Zotero.

First, you need to export your entire bibliography in BibTeX format. Go to Mendeley, Endnote, or Zotero and download/export your bibliography in BibTeX format. This will give you a .bib file.

Second, go to an existing Authorea article and navigate to the Data folder, and browse to the bibliography folder (if it does not exist, create the folder).

Finally, upload the .bib file with your library (using the Upload button) in the bibliography folder.

The bibliographic records in the BibTeX files you uploaded are now automatically picked up by the Authorea document. You can access them via the citation tool: click Cite in the toolbar and then search Local.
