Author first pass requests
back to First-pass flagging pipelines
Textpresso scans the paper for an e-mail address based on the '@'. The first e-mail it finds is used as the author to contact.
The first line with @ stuff is here : http://textpresso-dev.caltech.edu/azurebrd/grep_output
which gets parsed into emails on tazendra here : /home/postgres/work/pgpopulation/afp_papers/textpresso_emails (the first thing is a bit junky, but that's the source)
These are the papers that have textpresso body : http://textpresso-dev.caltech.edu/azurebrd/textpresso_has_body
This doesn't work with all journals
- BMC journals in which there may be a systematic problem with a consistent pattern of having a "* - " right in front of the corresponding author's e-mail.
6/20/09 The code was changed to kludge this particular problem to look for the "* -"
Continuing problems, which results in no author e-mail sent:
- the email isn't correct because of tokenizing (e.g. 00032111 and 00032933 splits the sentence in the
middle of the email because of a dot (BMC journals))
- the PDF is a provisional PDF
Articles whose authors will not be requested for first-passing include:
- any article with no e-mail contact information
- old articles
- book chapters
