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.

Usage[edit]

From Commandline

php dblpcmd.php FIRSTNAME LASTNAME [MIDDLENAMEINITIAL]

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])
