Citations provide valuable information e.g., used in evaluating an author's influences or scholarly quality (the impact factor of research journals).

We define a set of common heuristics that together allow to improve the state of the art in automatic citation mining. Moreover, by first disambiguating citations based on venues, our technique significantly enhances the correct discovery of citations. Our experiments show that the proposed approach is indeed able to overcom...
