UKPMC is Zotero-enabled

Zotero is a free, easy-to-use research tool that helps you gather, organize, and analyze sources (citations, full texts, web pages, images, and other objects), and lets you share the results of your research in a variety of ways.

UKPMC is now "Zotero enabled", which means that users can store the bibliographic details of any UKPMC article directly into their Zotero Library. Items held in a Zotero Library can be exported as formatted references, tagged and searched. Figure 1, below, shows how to add a single item to your Zotero library.

When viewing a full text article (in html, not pdf) it is also possible to extract details of all the articles referenced in that article. (See Figure 2).
