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 sample source code snippets that matched your search term. Source code snippets are chunks of source code that were found out on the Web that you can cut and paste into your own source code. Whereas most of the sample source code we've curated for our directory is for consuming APIs, we occasionally find something interesting on the API provider side of things. If you know of some sample source code 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.
