It's easy to migrate your data from other reference management tools to Zotero. Instructions for popular tool are linked below.
You can also import from other tools, such as Reference Manager, RefWorks, Papers, Google Scholar Library, ReadCube, etc., by exporting to a standardized reference format, such as RIS, BibTeX, CSL JSON, or XML and then importing into Zotero by clicking File → “Import…” and choose “A file”.
A full list of file formats Zotero can import is available here.
