The service parses and interprets a bibliographic citation submitted and breaks out separate fields such as author name, title, year of publication, publisher, and other descriptive characteristics. It is powered by an open-source application, released under the MIT license, that can be installed locally or accessed as a web service. The XML structure generated defines basic metadata for the resource referenced in the citation, or for multiple citations.
API methods accept one or more bibliographic citations as URL strings in common bibliographic formats. Methods return XML identifying author, title, year of publication, publisher, genre, and page count.
The following is a list of how-to and tutorial content that matched your search term. ProgrammableWeb's how-to content comes from two sources; full-blown tutorials that we publish ourselves and other highly relevant tutorials that we find elsewhere on the Web. This list represents on combination of both tutorial types and if you go to ProgrammableWeb's API University, you'll not only be able to find more, they are organized based on your role (API providers or developers who consumes APIs). If you know of a tutorial that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
