New to Obsidian and Zettelkasten method and need some advice on how/whether to integrate Zotero
My goal is to ultimately write literary essays.
At this time I
a) Read, highlight and annotate books in pdf and Kindle format on a Kindle, and import to Readwise
b) Read, highlight and annotate essays and articles in Readwise Reader
c) Import these highlights and annotations into Obsidian, and treat them as Bibliographic Notes. The Bibliographic note has the source written in APA format in the metadata.
d) I then create one note from each “idea” I think is important in my bibliographic note (reformulating and/or responding to the source.
e) I then link this new note back to the Bibliographic note it came from and note the page number (if its a pdf). For example “[[Foucault-84]] (pg 72) writes that a disciplinary society is…” I also link it other relevant notes.
d) I plan to write by following the links in my Obsidian Zettelkasten, assembling the different ideas into an essay.
My question is could I enhance the way I am tracking sources using Zotero, and if so, how? I have no desire to do my highlighting and annotating in Zotero itself (because it only supports pdfs, and doesn’t have a native android app, for now I will keep using Readwise Reader). All the methods I have seen so far assume that you are highlighting in Zotero.
Is there a way to use Zotero to track sources and then get an automated bibliography when I have finished my essay?
