Like most other citation managers Zotero doesn’t have a style for the algae journal. For a while now I’ve been wanting to create some for J.Phyc and Protist and the like. I just never got around to it and ended up manually editing the bibliography created with an already available style. This is of course quite tedious and borring. So today I decided to spend a couple of hours and create a Protist citation style for Zotero. It really wasn’t that hard to use their visual style editor. Its all gui and the automatic update of the modifications I was making was really helpful.
If any Zotero users outhere ever need to format something for Protist I’ll keep the style available here. Just download it, save it as a “protist.csl” and install it as usual. I anticipate the style code will need updates – I already noticed something that doesn’t look quite right. But as it is now its almost identical to the format of some Protist papers from 2013.
