ICAPS-Citation-Count

Scrapes Google Scholar for the citation count of all papers at a particular ICAPS conference (given the DBLP page for the conference proceedings).

Usage

Uncomment at least one of the gen_csv lines in icaps-scrape.py and execute the file. Add more years, as necessary, at the top of the file.

Notes

  • The value in the Result column will be one of the following:
    • SINGLE if only one result is returned (expected)
    • MULTI for multiple results (should be manually verified to get the citation count)
    • NONE if for some reason the title returns nothing on Google Scholar
  • Use the paper URL to get a sense if the right paper was found (many URLs should point to the AAAI library)
  • The script requires Beautiful Soup
  • If you open the CSV in a spreadsheet application, | is used as the text delimiter (for title's with commas)
  • Google Scholar seems to limit the queries that can be performed. The use of a cookie tries to side-step this, but it doesn't always work. You may need to run the script for different years on different machines or reconnect to a VPN. There shouldn't be any issue pulling down one full year at a time though.
  • The scholar.py file is a modified version of this project.
