CORREA RIVEROS, Freddy Alberto  and  CORTES ALDANA, Félix Antonio. Easyverifier 1.0: a software tool for revising scientific articles´ bibliographical citations. Ing. Investig. [online]. 2010, vol.30, n.1, pp.151-156. ISSN 0120-5609.

The first academic revolution which occurred in developed countries during the late 19th century made research a university function in addition to the traditional task of teaching. A second academic revolution has tried to transform the university into a teaching, research and socio-economic development enterprise. The scientific article has become an excellent practical means for the movement of new knowledge between the university and the socioeconomic environment. This work had two purposes. One was to present some general considerations regarding research and the scientific article. The second was to provide information about a computational tool which supports revising scientific articles´ citations; this step is usually done manually and requires some experience. The software allows two text files to be read, one containing the scientific article´s content and another one the bibliography. A report is then generated allowing the authors mentioned in the text but not indexed in the bibliography to be identified and to determine which authors have been mentioned in the bibliography but who have not been mentioned in the text of the article. The software allows researchers and journal coordinators to detect reference errors among citations in the text and the bibliographical references. The steps to develop the software were: analysis, design, implementation and use. For the analysis it was important the revision of the literature about elaboration of citations in scientific documents.

Keywords : academic revolution; research; scientific article; citation, bibliographic review; software.
