What is Zotero?
Zotero (pronounced "zoh-TAIR-oh") allows you to concentrate on your research and writing as it collects, manages, and cites your research sources and its FREE!
You can add PDFs, images, audio and video files, and snapshots of webpages. Zotero will index the full text which will enable you to be able to easily locate documents in your own library.
The APA coding in Zotero prefers DOI and URLs over publisher location and publisher for an APA book citation. So, if your Zotero parent record (bibliographic metadata) includes either a DOI or URL the publisher information WILL NOT be included in your APA reference.

However, If you would prefer to have the publisher information and location to be used in your reference citation, remove the DOI and/or URL (you can store it in the note area) and confirm that the location and publisher information is correct.
