Conference Proceedings not included from Zotero

Nadir Weibel 2 years ago updated 2 years ago 9

Hi, When I connect to my library on Zotero, Bibbase only pulls journal papers, but most of my publications are conference papers.

Here my reference lists from Zotero


Can you help me getting all publications from there into BibBase?

Thanks a lot

Can you provide a link to your page where you use BibBase?

I don’t have a page, I just used the connector on your page to connect to zotero here https://bibbase.org/

I can't debug this if I cannot see what you see. The connector gives you a URL and I assume that URL is where you saw something missing. Can you share that URL?

I see lots of conference papers:

What is missing?

OK, I missed those because they are in previous years. There is nothing for instance for 2018 and 2017.

Here two screenshot just for 2018 and 2017 showing the complete list on zotero (

Hi Christian, have you been able to troubleshoot this issue yet?

Thanks a lot, I really do appreciate your help


I think that that might just not work for groups yet, see https://bibbase.userecho.com/communities/1/topics/23-only-small-part-of-zotero-group-library-is-displayed#comment-92. The best workaround for now is to use a shared account and use the "My Library" collection from that account instead of a group. Would that work in your case?


Hi Christian.

I wonder if there has been any update on this problem (bibbase not working for groups in Zotero)?

The workaround you suggested does not really work well, since we have many peolpe with their own account, so the earlier this works, the better is it for us.

Let me knw and thanks a lot for the great tool and the help
