I am looking for a way of programmatically get the references cited in a publication. My use scenario is as follow:
I would like to do a literature analysis based on the selected reviews. To do this, I would like to
1) get the list of articles cited by this review
2) of each article cited, get again the articles cited
3) Do this again (probably down to the 3rd or 4th level
I would use this information to try to identify clusters of literature based on their cited literature to identify "schools of thought" and relevant literature to a certain topic.
Is there a way of batch downloading the references cited, and similar, the articles citing a certain paper?
