Reference mining is fundamental to the creation of citation networks and rich, discoverable digital libraries. In recent years, a number of tools have been developed to address this need, but they are often limited by input format, infrastructure requirements and runtime performance. The most recent developments in this space have focused on reference mining PDFs from arts and humanities literature, but there’s a growing need for a fast, accurate way of extracting and parsing references from a wide range of documents and formats across the full research landscape.

Looking back if I was to summarise my first 3 months at BMJ, confusion would be the best word to describe it. Moving from one company to another can be a daunting task, a plethora of questions goes through one’s mind. There are the big questions such as; What are my colleagues going to be like? Will I be appreciated? How many holidays do I get in a year? To the trivial questions such as; When do I get paid? Where’s the nearest toilet? What’s the quickest route to the office? While I was finding the answers to these questions and learning more about the technology behind the BMJ’s many products it was a challenging time for the tech department where we saw many departures. Two colleagues left within my first week, followed by another two leaving before the new year. However one thing that reassured me was that everyone was leaving after a few years of employment here, which was a positive sign.
