References Extractor

With this tool you can simulate the reference extraction on INSPIRE.

Simply upload a PDF file, insert an arXiv identifier or the URL of a PDF file, or paste a reference list into the text box.

As a result you get the reference list as it would appear on INSPIRE. For long reference lists and cases where we have to get the PDF from the URL, it might take some time. If you submit more than 200 references, the tool will very likely time out.

If you check and correct your references before submitting a paper to arXiv you help us to make sure that your references will appear correctly. INSPIRE so far only recognises references in the form of arXiv identifiers, report numbers, journal references and DOIs.

The documents you provide are immediately deleted after simulating the reference extraction. We do not collect nor retain any information.
