The output of this algorithm is a copy of the input database, but with the REFERENCE table updated to point to the DOCUMENT table (via the PAPER_FK field). When it is finished, it reports how many References were matched to Papers and how many References were over matched to Documents. An over matched Reference is a Reference that matches more than one Document.


Load an ISI file into the tool, then create a database from it using the ISI database loader.

It is strongly recommended that the database be cleaned before matching References to Documents.

For a quick analysis of a small dataset you may wish to merge together author entities with identical names. For a scientifically sound analysis of a larger dataset, you can find author entity merging suggestions (or manually set your own merging orders from scratch) and perform the merge.

Then, you will probably want to merge together journal entities according to recognized variants.
