Reference (or Citation) management software helps you keep track of research materials. This guide details how to install and get the most out of Jurism. It gives special attention to manage multilingual sources for your research. With these programs you can save PDFs, annotate them, export highlights, and take general notes on any material you are collecting for a project.
What is Jurism?
It is a special version of Zotero to help with citing foreign language materials. Jurism is also used by legal scholars to cite legal codes, but this guide will only focus on the multilingual capabilities. This is why you still need to sometimes use the zotero.org website and have a zotero account.
What if I already have Zotero?
You can install Jurism, open it up, login with your Zotero username and password, and your materials will appear in Jurism.
Setting up the language configuration is not intuitive when doing it the first time. It is recommended to review the Multilingual Setup section of this guide.
