Brief project description: The aim of the project is to develop a technology to automate the process of depositing large amounts of citation data in an institutional database. The technology will rely on the state-of-the-art methods for Information Retrieval and Natural Language Processing to discover citation data of university staff on the Web. Carried out jointly by ILP and LIS of the University of Wolverhampton, the project is expected to stimulate growth of Wolverhampton Intellectual Repository and E-theses and potentially similar repositories in other organisations.
