Dear Franjo, 
I don't fully understand your PS, but it would be nice if you wrote the
little program to do this, and I can offer to host it on my website. At
least, I'll send a link. 
It is often easiest to export the data first as CSV and then to read and
rewrite it with a program.
With best wishes,

Subject: [SIGMETRICS] bibliog. + cit. database [help request]



I would be grateful if somebody could provide me with links/information on
free/share/trial-ware software or simple but functional homemade databases
suitable for manually collecting bibliographic data and cited references
from several journals not covered by ISI, suitable for later bibliometric
analysis (standard fields  should be supported, like: author/s,
journal/article title, page, issue, vol. number . and all necessary
relations to cited ref., authors institutional affiliation ...). 


Lately I've found a lot of tools primarily built to carry out bibliometric
analysis on ISI standardized input data (ISI export format). I've started by
storing data from a two journals into my own MS Access database, but the
problem is that in this case I won't be able to use available tools that
require standard ISI data format, like Sitkis, Bibexcel, Citespace, number
of tools developed by Loet Leydesdorff etc.. 


Maybe a bibliographic conversion tool could solve my problem? Are you aware
of a tool that converts Access supported export formats to ISI fields tagged


Thank you for all suggestions and help in advance,



Franjo Pehar (PhD student)



P.S. it seems to me that a blank version of ISI's citation index or Scopus
would be an ideal solution for my problem :))
