i need a library to analyse references of a scientific document. the lib should be able to identify references in the full text (for instance , , ... or Author A (1995), ... Author B & C (1968), ...) and it should be able to identify the elements in the reference list. For instance if the reference list looks like this:
Smith, J. 1982, A new method for reference analysing, Journal of Information Technology, vol. 23, no. 5, pp. 234-238.
the library/algorithm should return for instance an array/list/... like this
|surname| |initial| |year| |title| |journal| ....
Do libraries like this exist in C++, Java, C# or whatever? I would also pay money for it if necessary.
