WikiCite 2016/Proposals/Improving Citable Data via Citoid/Zotero

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki





The Citoid Tool uses Zotero translators to add citation information via identifiers. These currently do not work on many data repositories and even where they do work, metadata is of low quality. I'd like to improve this.


  • Improve Zotero/Citoid import from DataCite DOIs
  • Improve import from several key data repositories
  • Ideally: tweak Citoid to go beyond what Zotero's metadata model allows



Slides from a webinar for Zotero and Data Repositories: https://figshare.com/articles/Zotero_for_Data_Repositories/3364708 (recording forthcoming)

Skills needed

  • basic javascript
  • Zotero/Citoid familiarity welcome but not required

Phabricator task

  • if you have a Phabricator task ID, you can link it here
