I have to collaborate in Word but can at least start out writing my papers
in org-mode. I use Zotero for reference management and with the help of
several tools I can insert citations that can be formatted by Zotero in the
final version of the paper.
Here is my configuration:

It uses Erik Hetzners org-zotxt and org-pdcite, ox-odt for converting to
odt, and then the tool http://zotero-odf-scan.github.io/zotero-odf-scan/ to
convert the generated citations like { | Smith, (2012) | |
|zu:2433:WQVBH98K} to Zotero citation marks in the odt-file.

Perhaps someone else will have use for this as well,
