Title Linking Citations to their Bibliographic references
Venue ACL-2012 Special Workshop on Rediscovering 50 Years of Discoveries
Year 2012

In this paper we describe our participation in the contributed task at ACL Special work- shop 2012. We contribute to the goal of en- riching the textual content of ACL Anthology by identifying the citation contexts in a paper and linking them to their corresponding ref- erences in the bibliography section. We use Parscit, to process the Bibliography of each paper. Pattern matching heuristics are then used to connect the citations with their ref- erences. Furthermore, we prepared a small evaluation dataset, to test the efficiency of our method. We achieved 95% precision and 80% recall on this dataset.
