We're in the process of updating the documentation for Zotero 5.0. Some documentation may be outdated in the meantime. Thanks for your understanding.

Zotero System Requirements


  • macOS 10.9 or later 1)
  • Windows XP SP2 or later
  • Linux

Zotero Connector for Chrome

  • Chrome 55 or later

Zotero Connector for Firefox

  • Firefox 52 or later

Zotero Connector for Safari

  • Safari 10 or later (available in macOS 10.10 or later) 2)

Word Processor Plugins

See Word Processor Plugin Installation for compatibility information. (Note that, while the same system requirements apply, Zotero Standalone users do not need to install the word processor plugins separately.)

1) Users of earlier macOS versions can install Zotero, but various functionality (e.g., syncing) will cease to work in the latter half of 2017 (more info).
2) Users of earlier Safari versions will be offered an older version of the Safari connector with more limited functionality.
