There are a couple of web applications that index the scientific activity. We can mention GoogleScholar, Portal ACM, Xplore etc. Each site uses a certain database, but for a given scientist we may findsome articles indexed on Google Scholar for example and other articles on Xplore. In our research wefocus to integrate all the results returned by a couple of web crawlers for a certain researcher. We start byinterrogating Google Scholar to find the articles created by a certain person. In order to do this we havecreated an API (Google Scholar has no API) that sends requests to the site and interprets the results,keeping the name of the article, the number of the citations, the co-authors. We query other sources and tryto make a comparison between the results we have received. In our research, we have used the DBLPComputer Science Bibliography of University Trier,, as asecond source. Other sources can be integrated as well in the application and there can be generatedstatistics.
