Abstract

Student often find difficulties in citing sources while citing source is an important component in academic writing. Most of the students still use manual citation whereas there are many rules and arrangements in writing citation. That may cause wrong citation when it is done manually. To overcome this problem, students can use Zotero as a web-based citation management tool to ease them in citing sources. For this reason, this research is aimed to reveal students’ attitude towards the use of Zotero as web-based citation management tool in academic writing. The quantitative data were collected in form questionnaire and is distributed to 107 out of the total 113 students as the population using Google form, WhatsApp chat, and direct massage through Instagram. SPSS 16.0 (Statistical Package for the Social Science) is utilized to find the result of students’ attitude from the questionnaire. The result shows that students in 8th semester have positive attitude in term cognitive aspect, affective aspect and negative attitude in behavior aspect toward the use of Zotero in academic writing. In the one hand, their cognitive aspect and affective aspect are positive toward the use of Zotero because they have been familiar, knowledgeable and enthusiastic about Zotero. In the other hand, they have negative attitude in behavior aspect because they do not use Zotero in their academic writing. In brief, cognitive and affective aspect does not affect behavior aspect students’.
