solution of the error "Could Not Save Item": Zotero and Web of science or other Web of Knowledge databases.

Currently Zotero not playing nice with Web of Science, or any of the other Web of Knowledge databases
e.g. error "Could Not Save Item. An error occurred while saving this item. Check Known Translator Issues for more information."

Please go to and save the file to the translators directory of your Zotero data directory (

Restart Firefox, and it should start saving from all WoK/ISI databases. Currently, it saves all of the results for your current query-- that'll change soon, but the courageous can try it out now."

There are unresolved issues that make multiple item saves fail, so this is limited to one item per save at present (DATA@dec 2011).

citeulike a web service for managing and discovering scholarly references

citeulike is a free service for managing and discovering scholarly references
  • Easily store references you find online
  • Discover new articles and resources
  • Automated article recommendations
  • Share references with your peers
  • Find out who's reading what you're reading
  • Store and search your PDFs

  • You can enter the URL of an article in the "Post URL" page which you can find within the "My CiteULike" menu.
  • However, you will probably find it more convenient to use one of our browser buttons which will let you post articles to CiteULike with a single click
  • You can also copy articles from other users' libraries into your own. Try searching for an article using the 'Search' link at the top right-hand corner of this page. Click on an article of interest, then choose [Copy] to add that article to your own library.
  • Import to My library. Pick a BibTeX or RIS file. Pretty much any BibTeX file should be fine. We should be able to cope with macros, comments, and most of the other strange things people put in their BibTeX files. Pretty much any RIS file should be OK too.
