Python Programming Project: BibTeX Parser

University of Amsterdam, Nov/Dec 2015
Research programming project proposal for Master of Logic
Supervisor: Christian Schaffner (ILLC / email)

Motivating Problem

Maintaining large bibtex files manually is time-consuming and almost impossible to do in a consistent way. Morever, this work is replicated over and over again by individual researchers or research groups.


Creating the perfect bibtex file (for articles in a certain research domain, such as quantum cryptography)


There already exists an open-source Python Bibtex Parser. We will aim at implementing the following extensions of this parser: Further work will create a website where articles can be looked up on the fly.
