BCite

BCite is a bibliographic reference correction service that allows data curators to reconcile bibliographic data with existing citations available in OpenCitations and Crossref, clean bibliographic data, and generate new open citations as RDF data.

The tool includes a web interface for data entry and cleaning, a triplestore Blazegraph, and an API for interacting with OpenCitations and Crossref.

Requirements

  • git
  • python3 with pip (<=3.6 suggested)
  • java

Installation

Clone or download the git repo.

cd bcite
virtualenv --python=python3.6 .
source bin/activate
pip3 install -r requirements.txt
cd triplestore/sh  
./run-local.sh
cd ../..
python3 -m script.web.app 8000

Usage

  • Run the triplestore launching the file run-local.sh included in the directory triplestore/sh - and stop it by running stop.sh. The triplestore runs at port 9999.
  • Run the web application by launching python3 -m script.web.app 8000.
  • The BCite App runs at http://localhost:8000.
