Basic Description[edit]

This extension allows users to batch import papers from DBLP, a Computer Science paper bibliography. Users can import papers by author names. Fetched data is in raw bibtex format, which can be further consumed by other bibtex extensions, e.g., Extension:Bibtex.

Download and installation[edit]

  1. Download a zip file from http://tw.rpi.edu/wiki.tw/images/e/ee/Dblp.zip
  2. Unzip the package to YOUR_MW_PATH/extensions/DBLP
  3. Add to LocalSetting.php
    require_once( "$IP/extensions/DBLP/dblpweb.php" );
  4. make sure "run.bat" is executable (e.g., permission 755)
  5. make necessary configuration changes to dblp.config.php

The extension has been tested on both Windows and Linux servers.


From Commandline


From Web

http://your wiki url/index.php?action=dblp&first=FIRSTNAME&mid=[MIDDLENAMEINITIAL]&last=LASTNAME

Using template may make web usage easier, e.g., [1]. If used with the Semantic Mediawiki extension, it may be further automated using semantic queries for a person's first name, last name and middle name initial (see examples [2] [3])
