A huge amount of academic papers(including research reports) are being released in web pages. It is important to extract these papers in a structured way for many popular applications, such as science and technology information retrieval and digital library. However, few investigations have been done on the issue of academic paper extraction. This paper proposed a unified approach for automatically extracting academic papers from web pages based on CRF model. In the proposed approach, both academic paper extraction and semantic labeling are performed simultaneously by employing the theoretical Conditional Random Fields(CRF) model.
