Keywords: Bibliographic repository, semiautomatic capture of information, Scopus API, module, Drupal.


This article, a result of a research project, the characteristics and functions of a module developed for managing bibliographic references about the content management system Drupal Version 7 are exposed. It integrates several functions that allows to host the information in a repository, of both bibliographic and users, and includes a function based on the Scopus API to obtain in a semiautomatically way metadata from publications, which simplifies and streamlines the information introduction and extraction. Acquiring metadata from publications would have a semiautomatic component which would reduce the amount of information that should be entered manually.
