Extracting references from PDF ot a new library


  While prepareing a scientific article one often needs the import references from PDF to EndNote program.

  Current version of EndNote was not designed to import information in a bibliography format.

  Please see the typical case below:

  Input: PDF-file containing a “References” section, listing a number of cited papers mentioning Author1, Author 2, Journal, Volume, Year for each cited paper.

  Operation: Endnote extracts list of cited papers from PDF, looks up metadata of each cited paper using a server (Google Scholar, Pubmed, etc.) and adds these as new library items in the users “My Library” folder.

  Output: New subcollection of library items containing all papers cited in PDF that was used for input.

  What do you think about this?
