citeproc-java is a Citation Style Language (CSL) processor for Java. It interprets CSL styles and generates citations and bibliographies.

Notes on used components
The BibTeX name parser's grammar is based on the one found in the bibtex-ruby. The original grammar is licensed under GPL v3. It has been converted to ANTLR and is released here under the Apache License 2.0 by permission of the original author Sylvester Keil.
Docear is released under the GPLv2 but its code may also be reused in projects licensed under Apache License 2.0. The mapping is released here under the Apache License 2.0 by permission of Joeran Beel, Docear.
The algorithm that produces typographically correct quotation marks and apostrophes is based on smartquotes.js written by Kelly Martin and released under the MIT license. The code has been translated to Java and improved to support more edge cases as well as multiple languages.
citeproc-java is able to sort citations in a natural, language-sensitive way.
The implementation of this behaviour is loosely based on the Alphanum algorithm
by Dave Koelle and the
released under the MIT license. However, it has been extended to use a
java.text.Collator for locale-sensitive comparison, and it is also able to
compare arbitrarily large numbers.
