CiteSeerX Software

The purpose of this page is to maintain a list of tools, publications, and Web services that are related to extracting information from scholarly documents so as to provide a point of reference for anyone interested in exploring this topic. The main focus is on header (title, authors, institutions, venue, etc) and citation metadata extraction, though other types of information extraction are covered as well.

This page was created and is maintained by Kyle Williams and Sagnik ray Choudhury.
