Back on July 17, 2007 Jonathan Rochkind started a thread on citation parsing:

"Does anyone have any decent open source code to parse a citation? I'm thinking about a completely narrative citation like someone might cut-and-paste from a bibliography or web page..."

We hope to develop such a service at Brown thanks to funding for a one-year programming position from the Mellon Foundation.

The Brown University Library invites applications for a Senior Research Library Programmer, a one-year position funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. The Programmer will develop a web-based citation parser which will operate with a high degree of accuracy on any free-text (non-fielded) bibliographic data. The Programmer will test and implement the parser on the publication data currently in the Directory of Research and Researchers at Brown, and will make the parser universally available via an API service hosted at Brown.
