zotero_write_bib: Write Zotero library to bibliography file

zotero_write_bibR Documentation

Write Zotero library to bibliography file

Description

Writes a file of the chosen bibliography format to path with items belonging to a Zotero user or group library, optionally limited to a specific collection. Also writes a text file with suffix .version alongside path which stores the Zotero library version number and allows for efficient caching.

Usage

zotero_write_bib(
  lib_id,
  path,
  collection_key = NULL,
  incl_children = FALSE,
  format = "csljson",
  force = FALSE,
  show_progress = TRUE
)

Arguments

lib_id

Zotero user or group library identifier. An object as returned by zoterro::zotero_user_id() or zoterro::zotero_group_id().

path

Path to write the bibliography file to. A character scalar.

collection_key

Collection key, see collections(). If NULL, all items in the library are returned.

incl_children

Whether or not to include child items from sub-collections beneath the collection_key's or the library's (if collection_key = NULL) top level.

format

Bibliographic data format used for export. One of:

  • "bibtex",

  • "biblatex",

  • "csljson",

  • "mods",

  • "refer",

  • "rdf_bibliontology",

  • "rdf_dc",

  • "rdf_zotero",

  • "ris",

  • "wikipedia"

For details, see the relevant Zotero documentation.

force

Whether or not to enforce overwriting the bibliography file regardless of actual changes to the Zotero library since the last export.

show_progress

Whether or not to output progress indication.

Details

If the Zotero library's content hasn't changed since the last export, nothing will be written to path and the performed API request will be significantly faster. See section Caching in zoterro::zotero_api() for further details.

Value

path, invisibly.
