This algorithm works, but could stand to have some more functions for dealing with text, e.g. a property to keep the longer of two lists of author names. This algorithm should eventually be replaced by functionality in the new database workflow.
The properties files for this algorithm are very similar to the properties files used in Extract Directed Network or Extract Co-Occurrence Network. For many pipelines you will need to create similar .properties files for both. Try creating one and adapting it for use in the other.
