More on Alf Eaton's Perl script for reference linking the BMC XML files....I just asked him whether he'd share his Perl script with others who might want to use it on other collections or adapt it to other metadata schemes. His reply: "Absolutely - the Perl script that adds citation data to HubMed is easy to adapt to any XML file or database that includes the PubMed ID numbers of cited articles. Anyone can send me their data files, or I'd be happy to work with publishers to get their citation data added to HubMed, if they'd prefer to run the script at their end."
