How to discover full texts and metadata?

Many software projects in the community involve finding automatically full texts of papers or metadata about them. We all use our own recipes, our favourite data sources, and it never works as well as we'd like. Enhancing our discovery tools takes time, and chances are that we are duplicating a lot of effort.

In this session, we will first invite everyone to share their experience about the tools and sources they use. How to find a PDF file for a paper? The email addresses of the authors? Do you scrape the web or do you use APIs? What would be the game-changing new data source for your project?

We will then try to see if some data or tools could be shared accross projects. We hope that this will increase cooperation in the community and initiate some common initiatives.
